TEDxBrainport 2013 – Making the Future
June 4th, 2013

A recent Design Academy Eindhoven graduate, Pieter Jan Pieters is building an impressive resumé of innovative project work involving sound technologies. Imagine if the waving motion you make with your arms could be translated into a sound wave. This is the premise of Pieter’s project ‘Sound on Intuition’. All our movements are unique, conscious or unconscious. ‘Sound on Intuition’ captures this uniqueness and transforms it into sound.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Conventional instruments have been altered, retuned, or otherwise manipulated to extend their sound possibilities. Searching for new sounds and the new expressive capabilities inherent within traditional instruments has become a primary force in Bettison’s work.
