The dBn is a drum and bass hack especially designed for the Nokia N8 Push competition. The hack is designed around a pair of shoes fitted with sensors and a micro-controller which are then hardwired into the nokia handheld device. The thick, colorful cables running from the shoes to the device bring out a sense of physicality and reflect upon the retro fashion. A granular audio synthesizer and sequencer software is loaded onto the handheld device.
Once the the shoes are hardwired to the device, the users can tune their shoes for a short duration by moving their feet in different directions. Each movement creates a unique sound. Once the tuning session has completed the users can move their feet in any way to generate customized drum and bass beats.
