These three sound toys were created with Milo Creative for the CBeebies TV show Space Pirates. The primary audience was 4-6 year olds (although they were designed to appeal to a wider secondary audience) allowing them to explore concepts such as pitch, rhythm, scale, chords, and tempo.
I worked on three of the modules - “Bubble Pop”, “Wake up Shoop” and “Sun and Moon - Music Moods”. Each provides a playful interface for exploring an open, goal-free environment populated with characters and objects that react to your actions and to each other - producing a variety of sounds, melodies and rhythms. They vary from an ambient environment that responds to gentle mouse movements to a virtual organ and simple sequencer.
