Digging In The Crates is the thesis work of Roland Loesslein and a traveling interactive installation that lets viewers/users explore the role of sampling in modern music using a turntable that responds to a projected visualization over the record. Turning the record will also turn the virtual projected record so that you can play, stop, skip, and pause the song that has been selected. In terms of data-driven visual projects, this is certainly one of the coolest ones I’ve seen.
