With Sound Rebound you can compose your own music by using colourful shapes as tools. First you make a visual composition on your working field as a map, then you let balls representing sounds like a downpour run over the field, bouncing and sliding down. This creates a sound collage in 2D, and shows how you can connect vision and sound in a spatial way.

This app is perfect for the young user but will also please adults, due to its effective simplicity and design that you can work out into as elaborate constructions as you like.

Sound Rebound stimulates musicality, creativity and confidence in creation. It was created by the San Francisco based Exploratorium, a public learning lab about science, art and perception.
