#PlayTheCity is a series where Ain TheMachine uses countries, regions, cities and their neighborhoods to create music. Sounds from the environments plus the body and voice are the only musical instruments used in the song. The idea is to #Play different cities around the globe.
This first episode of #PlayTheCity was inspired by Mogees, a revolutionary app and vibration sensor to transform any object into a unique musical instrument, giving you an entire world of new creative possibilities. Just stick the Mogees sensor to anything around you and play the world.
Based on the Mogees’s concept of “play the world”, Ain TheMachine proposed a serie of videos where he uses the Mogees to transform the whole city into a musical instrument.
The first chosen city is Berlin, and more especifically, Kreuzberg, the famous alternative neighbourhood.
This composition is the result of a live improvisation from the region sites. Once in the studio, with all the sounds captured, ATM put them together to compose the song.
