Jim Hall’s Isle of Tune
POSTED: December 21, 2010
Jim Hall is a UK web developer, who has a very interesting web site.
His home page is a complex version of the old eyes-that-follow-the-cursor routine. This time the eyes belong to a giant cat that moves its head a little in a tree filled park where leaves are falling.
And it has camera flare as you move the cursor backwards and forwards.
The actual content is also interesting, especially the showreel.
Watch and wonder!
Isle of Tune
This is a wonderful, creative waste of time, that he is planning to port to the iPhone and iPad.
The point is to build a small town from houses, trees and so on, and then assign a musical sound to each object in town. Then link them with a network of roads. Finally, when you drop some cars on the roads they move around automatically, playing the sounds as they pass, thus creating a shifting musical landscape.
Look, mum: there’s Brian Eno driving the green car!
