Love Song

As an employee of Tellart.

"For Valentine’s Day, Tellart launched the Love Song Machine–a brightly colored octave of mechanically played physical bells connected to a web-based music composition interface. Players either selected a popular love song from a menu, or used a drag and drop composition interface to submit a song, and then watched as their songs were played out on the real bells in our Providence office. A live web cam showed the bells (and our team working and waving in the background) as the song played out.

Yes, it was incredibly annoying for our staff…but it reminded us of how incredible it (still) is that people from around the world can connect to a real physical space and watch in real-time as they control it." -from Tellart
