The city is full of dedicated melomaniacs, bumping into you without looking back, dreamily taken away or thumpingly going around to the beat of their last musical love.
House parties invite each visitor, through either subtil, robotic(think of the i-dog) or bulky looking mp3 sound-sharing devices, to fill the surrounding space with their diverging tastes, opening discussions, social interactions and bringing dance enthusiasts together.
This brings me to the next question what ever became of our need (and love) for an object that distributes sound as well as looks good on ones’ tabletop. A discussion piece that is both aesthetically pleasing, useful and helps in the endeavor to transform data into sounds. Where is the 21st century’s answer to the gramophone
Well en&is (Isabella Lovero and Enrico Bosa) Megaphone is a ceramic amplifier for iphones and designed to output the best sound available. A wooden frame supports said piece to create a floating device, and as said on their website:"this in order to increase the vibration of the object and to optimize the emission of sound".
