Music is absolutely essential for creativity - it inspires new ideas, helps us to create and build, and provides a soundtrack for life.
That's why we've teamed up withZalytron
,Create Digital Music
, andBleep Labs
to bring you the Art of Sound Contest
. Show us something amazing and music-related, and win an awesome set of hand-built custom speakers or a musical instrument kit!
This contest is open to any project that creates something beautiful with
sound. Whether you're into homemade/modified instruments, circuit-bending, speakers, sound activation, or anything else, this contest is for you. Simply create, modify, actuate, craft, decorate, enhance, display, amplify, or visualize sound, and tell us how
you did it. It can be your take on a classic project, or something entirely new and unique - it's up to you!
Now show us your original instrument, your tricked-out subwoofer, or your sound-responsive wall of LEDs! Be thorough, and document your project well so others can follow in your footsteps. Share your skills and experience to help inspire others, expand the possibilities of both sound and art, and win some fabulous prizes!
Multiple entries are fine, but only one prize per entrant.
Inernational entries are OK, but speakers can only be shipped within the U.S. International winners must take care of shipping.
One of a kind set of racing stripe upholstered hi-fi Focal speakers paired with a 12" Zalyton subwoofer with built-in 100 watt amplifier that features a sound dampening truck bed liner paint job and waterjet-cut steel flames. These speakers not only sound great, but they look smokin' hot too.
Pair of monstrously awesome Focal speakers. Each of these beasts sound blissfully sweet and have more than enough personality to match. Speakers come with a large set of attachments to change up the look any way you want!
One quirkily great Thingamakit from Bleep Labs. Also an Instructables Robot t-shirt, patch, and stickers.
