Google Glass Gets Into The Music Game

Google Glass Gets Into The Music Game | Music and Technology | Scoop.it

As soon as it came out, the $1,500 futuristic eyewear known as Google Glass became something of a punchline. But the technology now has some music apps that go along with it, and those apps seem pretty fucking cool. Using voice-activated commands, you can now identify a song that you might hear, find that song, buy it, and even search out a place to find that song on vinyl. And in the promotional video below, Jay-Z sound engineer Young Guru does exactly that, hearing a song in a Mexican restaurant and then finding that exact same song on vinyl.

Cristian Barkan's insight:

I think this is great the idea of having some glasses that by just akisng it to look something up for you in the internet i mean anything.  You can be sitting in the train and you hear a song that you like you can just touch these glasses and ask for the name of the song and it will give it to you. Lets say you in a diferent country that you dont know the language of good thing you got this glasses thought cause you cant ask these glasses to translate words for you so i think thes glasses are pretty cool.

Emulator- Amazing Multi-Touch DJ Technology

Emulator- Amazing Multi-Touch DJ Technology | Music and Technology | Scoop.it

The Emulator, an amazing multi-touch DJ technology allows DJs and music makers to control their sound with their hands in unprecedented ways. Take your iPad and blow it up to ten times the size, make it translucent, and then allow it to run third party software that’s not currently available at the app store. Then, you’ve got Emulator. This system pushes the boundaries in human/computer interaction to sever the barrier between man and music, allowing the user to feel the music and effect it in ways that return to analog innocence. The lights shine brightly, the knobs, faders and otherwise snap to human touch, and the result is a strong connection to the beat as it pumps once, twice, thrice, fourth– and back again.

Cristian Barkan's insight:

I think the Emulator is great cause it allows djs to work with more stuff and is touch screen, and it has giant midi controllers. You can multi task  on it freely and easier since is as big as a 40' inch tv and is multi touch also.

 

Pros: The emulator is big and is touch screen allows djs to multitask                   also.

 

Cons: The emulator is big and made out glass it can fall and brake                        and is hard to carry since is big and it weights 80Lb.

Creating Music with iPads - iPad and Technology in Music Education

Creating Music with iPads  - iPad and Technology in Music Education | Music and Technology | Scoop.it

"One area that I don’t have time to explore very often during the school year is creating music on my iPad. It seems with all the day to day activities of teaching that I totally loose touch with musical explorations and composing. I’ve been taking more time lately to do this and I am floored at what I can do with an iPad and a few apps. I am not going to give you a history lesson here but I will say that at one time in my career I dreamed of creating a wonderful MIDI lab outfitted with computers, keyboards, speakers and mixers for my students to use. That dream never happened because of the crazy cost involved. My dream has been reshaped. Here is what I’ve found…."

Cristian Barkan's insight:

I think this is pretty cool, if you have a iPad you can make music by just downloading apps.  You can take a iPad anywhere, you can be bored, or sitting somewhere ust waiting and  you can just pulled out your ipad and start making music and that is of course if you are into music.

I think this a good way to for musicians or others to shared music with just a scan, you basically scaning it or flashing it into yur phone by just putting it under your phone and the the music or sound transfer to the phone. Is pretty cool cause you dont necesarly have to go to trough all the trouble with bluetooh if you wan to share it. You just simply scan it and it will start playing in your fone.
