Squidsoup Soundtoys Interface

Click and drag a disc; try to pot it or other discs. Each disc represents a different soundtoy artist, and their links are at the top of the screen. When two discs collide, a sound is emitted. When a disc is potted, another disk turns up, representing another soundtoys artist.

Commissioned to act as a playful interface to the soundtoys.net collection aimed at a young audience. We have attempted to combine striking visuals with gameplay and soundplay while also allowing visitors to browse the hundreds of soundtoys available.

Interactive interface for the soundtoys site commissioned by Stanza for soundtoys.net. Thanks to the Arts Council Of England and The Watershed Media Center.
