Giving Radios a purpose in a world of Digital Music Downloads.
Radio’s are used increasingly less by young people who find them dated and would rather use an MP3 player. One of the unique qualities of radios, however, that MP3 players don’t offer, is that they let you hear music that you havent specifically chosen but may like, thus broadening your musical knowledge and taste. This quality is being over looked by young people and so the Music Notes radio has been developed with the aim of helping you to learn about new music.
The recent disembodiment of music has meant that listening to it is no longer a unique or ritual like process, as putting a record or CD on used to be. Many people miss this physical interaction. To bring back the interaction with music, Music Notes has been designed to be hand held. None of the buttons are marked and there are playfull ways of controlling it. This will appeal to children’s inquisitive nature and encourage exploration.
