Playful sound and vision designer Matthew Irvine Brown recently created an ongoing project called “Music for Shuffle”. The concept is elegantly simple: a series of short, interlocking pieces of music that all seamlessly segue into each other, thus creating a unique song as they shuffle. Click play to watch a “Music for Shuffle” demo.
The project is mentioned in Tom Ewing’s new Poptimist column, which discusses issues of randomness and sound, and features insights on James Blake, Brian Eno, and how the Internet is opening us up to iterative concepts.
