Weird Metronome

“Weird Metronome is a program that acts as a metronome, displaying a blinker and using your computer’s speakers to play its beat. But this isn’t just any old metronome. I designed it with Easter European folk music in mind, so my main priority was to have it be able to play any weird meter you want. The result is that you can set it to play a measure of any length you want, with emphasis on any beat(s) you want, with sounds chosen from a library of nearly fifty percussion instruments.”

Maker Profile – Kinetic Wave Sculptures on MAKE: television

“Reuben Margolin, a Bay Area visionary and longtime maker, creates totally singular techno-kinetic wave sculptures. Using everything from wood to cardboard to found and salvaged objects, Reubens artwork is diverse, with sculptures ranging from tiny to looming, motorized to hand-cranked. Focusing on natural elements like a discrete water droplet or a powerful ocean eddy, his work is elegant and hypnotic.”

I add the comment, to which I totally agree, on this video made by Sidus666, 8 maanden geleden: “This dude is an ARTIST. The way he looks at the world is not usual. He just stops, and sees every little detail, every wave on the water. Now think about how many of you people stop and think about how beautiful the world is nowadays, chasing your careers and living in constant stress.”
