^3
ZeroOne San Jose
^3, a.k.a. 'cubed' is a musical sequencer integrated into a Rubik's CubeĀ®. By manipulating the colors on the cube, users generate different sound algorithms within the sequencer. Using specially-designed soundfonts from Jankenpopp.com, math geeks can finally become the speedcubing breakcore supernerds they always feared were lurking underneath. With ^3 we are working against the idea that a musician has to create music with audio software where building the musical algorithm and manipulating the digital algorithm are two different processes. In ^3, all of the notes of the musical process are visible and intrinsically intertwined.
