We brought you initial news of PUSH TURN MOVE - Interface Design in Electronic Music last month and now the Kickstarter campaign for the book has officially opened. Here's the statement from Author Kim Bjørn:
My name is Kim Bjørn and welcome to the PUSH TURN MOVE Kickstarter campaign!
Like many others I have been following the development of music technology for years. As those years passed, I began to imagine combining my interest for design with my love of gear - in order to write a comprehensive book about interface design in electronic music.
PUSH TURN MOVE shows all kinds of equipment but the ambition goes further: It provides a categorization of musical gear and software and explores the functional, artistic and aesthetic world of user interfaces in the context of making electronic music.
Initially the book was born out of my own passion. However it has now developed into a multi-voiced project since it presents the diverse thoughts of a long list of innovative makers, artists and companies who conceived or use these great music making tools.
Quite unique is that a string of significant brands have joined the book side by side to share their knowledge about the growing family of instruments and software for making electronic music.
So what exactly is PUSH TURN MOVE and why do we seek funding on Kickstarter? The answer is that PUSH TURN MOVE is a niche book, not aimed at a mainstream audience. Watch the video, take the tour below and please support the book by selecting a reward if you like the idea.
