We can listen to any music, everytime
and everywhere, on-demand. But we
have practically no chance to avoid our
screen-based devices doing so. Breaking
out of physical boundaries music lost its
tangibility. The interfaces we use to
browse and play music today are dense
and multilayered and offer high flexibility
and control of what is played.
iko is proposing an alternative to screen-based interfaces that we use to listen to music. Thereby it is no replacement of them but an alternative approach. It is not expanding the complexity and flexibility of existing interfaces but, opposing, narrowing the possibilitys down to specific physical interactions.
