Ladies and gentlemen, let we introduce the Teenage Engineering Choir.
What you see are eight wooden dolls, made to serenade you witha repertoire of choral classics as well as perform your own original compositions through midi over ble.
Each member has their own characteristic vocal range. Individually one can sing a dynamic solo, together they perform an immersive a cappella concert. The choir is inspired by the original absolut choir, our very first project.
Behind the curtain.
The pre-programmed repertoire of classic songs have been created and performed using an algorithm based on counterpoint melody, a compositional technique that refers to the independent but complementary relationship between two or more lines of melody played at the same time. (applause)
Tap, tilt or smack.
To get the choir started, they need a helping hand. a sensor inside the speaker module reacts to vibration and movement, so controlling choir is a playful experience in itself. Gently tap the doll on its head or on the table to trigger play or pause, or tilt the doll left or right to decrease or increase the volume accordingly. if it gets annoying, it can handle a little smack to turn it off.
Each doll is handcrafted from solid beech
and individually polished with hard wax oil. The speaker modules inside are removable as well as rechargeable.
At the centre of each doll is a magical speaker module
which also functions as the cpu and ble transmitter, rechargable with up to 4 hours of performance time.
and hold on, wait for it...your OP–1 field just got a life changing,truly unique upgrade.
Choirs midi compatibility is where the magic really happens. conduct your choir with OP–1 field, OP–Z, or any midi keyboard with bluetooth connectivity or connect an ortho remote for wireless control. Connecting one doll pairs the whole choir, instantly singing the notes in your composition. as with any live performance, each set will be a one-of-a-kind experience. (standing ovations)
