A Bottle That Collects Sounds To Create Personalized Soundtracks

Just like collecting fireflies in a jar, the ‘Re: Sound Bottle’ is a device that lets you collect sounds and noises, which you can turn into personalized soundtracks.

Designed by Jun Fijiwara, the device works by simply uncorking the bottle—if sound is present, it enters ‘recording mode’ and automatically saves the sound.

As more sounds are recorded, an audio database will be formed, creating rhythmic tracks—just like a mini robot DJ.

To listen to the sounds that you have collected, uncork the bottle again and wait for your soundtrack to play.

According to Fijiwara, he hopes for the Re: Sound Bottle to help people to interact more directly with music by recording the sounds they encounter in their daily life.
