What eventually became the Fruit Looper started out as the Object Turntable. Both the Fruit Looper and the Object Turntable offer a rotating surface where one places items that create a looping musical phrase. The intention was to rethink a traditional musical interface — the turntable — in a new way that would invite inclusion and collaboration. By rejecting the vinyl record as the turntable medium, the Object Turntable invites people to experience the turntable with new rules and a level playing field. This freshness along with the objects’ visual connection to the sound heard also invites collaboration.
