near near future continues to bring fascinating alternative music controllers to our attention. This week they cover two objects that generate sound, cubes and jars:

  • loopqoob
    builds further on the idea of playing with blocks, with cubes linked to

    skills to play instruments.

If you've got your own odd controller or have seen one, drop me a line.
