Patatap turns your browser into a musical animation controlled by your keyboard

New, 5 comments

Open this website, put on your headphones, and start typing. Created by designer Jono Brandel in collaboration with the music composers Lullatone, Patatap is described as a "portable animation and sound kit," turning your keyboard into an instrument for musical animations. Press any key from A to Z to produce different sounds with accompanying motion graphics. When you've exhausted one alphabet of options, press the space bar to totally change all the sounds and graphics associated with each key. According to Brandel's website, the project is meant to showcase synesthesia — where stimulating one sense causes an experience in another. If nothing else, it'll help you kill some time while making music.
