The SoniColumn -- an interactive sound installation that's one part sci-fi and one part Victoriana-- is the latest work from multimedia artist Jin-You Mok. Part of his MusicBox Project, the piece, as you can no doubt guess, consists of elements designed to mimic a music box in one form or another. The SoniColumn itself works through an array of touch-sensitive LEDs that each emit a unique tone when touched -- the budding musician can then turn a crank to rotate the column and play back his/her composition in its entirety. If you want let loose your inner Thomas Dolby
, you can currently check out the SoniColumn at Bitforms gallery in Seoul, South Korea, or catch it's next appearance at Wired's NextFest in NYC come October.
