Actionist Respoke (Passivist Destroke)
Michael Janoschek & Rüdiger Schlömer

Sound interface for the music of "Mouse On Mars"

"Actionist Respoke" was produced on the occasion of the "MTV iClip Award". Contrasting the commercial orientation of the format iClip (an interactive web version of Music Video Clips), this work reflects the question if music has to please the listener and if an interface has to obey the user.
A kind of sound-compost, this interface is a stubborn, difficult to use system, which develops a chaotic/poetic dynamic of its own until it totally gets out of control:

"...If i-Clip is about visualizing the character of a band and its music, Mouse On Mars deserve more than an instant fun interface. Here is something between a Sequencer and Sound Tamagotchi. Put some learning effort into it, don't let visuals irritate you and most of all, don't be lazy.
This is not about just sitting back and having music served on a tablet. If you don't work hard enough, your i-Clip will crash soon."
