What is Mogees – and how does it work?
Mogees is an innovative new way for everyone to let their musical imagination run wild, transforming the objects around us into unique and powerful musical instruments.
Mogees consists of a mobile app and a small sensor that detects and analyses the vibrations that we make when we interact with the objects around us. It uses a special sound technique to alter their acoustic properties so as to make them musical.
Above all, it’s about everyone making beautiful music out of ordinary objects. Just plug it in and play the world.
Any time, any place, any object!
Mogees lets everyone – regardless of their musical or technical abilities – express themselves in what for many will be an entirely new medium. The creative and musical dimensions that Mogees adds to life – whether planned or improvised, professional or novice – makes for exciting, creative musical experiences.
1. Sounds presets : Select different sound presets and associate them to the objects you play.
2. Free Mode : The free mode lets you improvise completely. Find new ways to produce different notes and timbres by exploring how to play physical objects using different gestures using bare hands or anything you can find around you. Through the app, you can also select the musical notes and timbres that you want the system to associate to your gestures.
3. Song Mode : You can also use Mogees to play and re-interpret your favorite tunes. Just use the app to load a MIDI file of the song you want to play and you are ready to go.
4. Capture : The Capture function allows you to capture the natural sound properties of your gestures and convert it to a sound preset. In this way, you can apply the sound properties from one object to another. You might like to play a tree with the acoustic properties of a glass, or a bicycle with the properties of an ice cube. The limits are only your imagination !
5. Backing track : Play along with a backing track. Use our pre-loaded loops or record/import your own audio files.
Features only available in the PRO App
6. Acoustic properties : Achieve total control on the sounds you create by accessing the advanced Mogees synthesis parameters. Customise the sounds you capture or create brand new ones.
7. Remote Mode : Synchronise your Mogees performances to your computer remotely. Use Ableton Live or other computer software to send OSC messages to the app and control all the parameters in real time.
8. DMX control : Control lights remotely using Mogees! The Mogees app can generate ARTNET messages on the fly to control any DMX-compatible light system via WiFi.
