We all miss album cover art work, and the tiny digital cover art on your iPod just isn’t the same. English designer, Michael Kennedy has the answer that makes retro meet modern in a funked up way. I-Deck is a touch screen music player that revitalizes album art and user interaction, that has been lost in current mp3 format. You simply doc your mp3 player into the base and use the touch screen to cycle through and select your tracks, flick it to skip, spin it to fast-forward and turn it to play. Then sit back and watch the album art play.

Paper Record Player

To play the record the handle needs to be turned in a clockwise direction at a
steady 331/3 rpm. The paper cone then acts as a pick up and amplifies the sound
enough to make it audible.

FM Radio Map

This map plots the location of FM commercial and pirate radio stations within London.The poster
works in its own right as a piece of information design, but when connected to the modified radio
it becomes part of the interface. Each map is made site specific by connecting only the stations that
can be received in that location. This is done by drawing power lines in pencil on the back of the map,
which conducts electricity from the radio to the front of the poster.Placing a metal contact onto each
point enables us to listen to the sound broadcast live from that location.

MXS

There are a lot of digital DJ systems out there now but I have yet to see one that got it right. That’s why I made the MXS. The MXS is a portable, easy to use DJ interface for people who are interested in DJing but do not want to commit to buying a full setup.

How does it work?
The MXS interface connects to a laptop via USB and manipulates audio files on your PC. The software is written in MAX/MSP.
