What is Sandwav?
Our aim was to create a interface that allow users to find pleasure and escape in manipulating sound. To achieve this we combine the tactile experience of playing with sand with a joyful exploration of sound. SANDWAV allows you to control music by reshaping sand. Begin by placing sand onto the white elevated platform, the sound change when you move with the sand, and clear sound by removing sand on the platform.
