This fun little music making game, simply called BallDroppings, was first created in 2003. The physics based game allows users to create music by drawing lines that guide balls regularly dropped from a point source. The created soundscape can be further adjusted by altering the drop-rate or ‘gravity’.
According the the GitHub project, headed by Josh Nimoy, the original source might be floating around the New York City area since it was distributed on CDs at a store called TKNY in the East Village. If anyone has a copy, Josh would love for you to send it their way so that they can archive it with the GitHub project.
It’s pretty fun to play around with — if anyone can create a cool beat or sound-scape with the game, we would love to hear about it in the comments below.
