SOMA Labs "Quantum Ocean"

Ok, here is where it gets really weird,..

And where it gets really interesting;

It's definitely different, a new paradigm, not really an instrument, though it produces sounds.
Electro Shamanism.

Probably not for everybody, I like the concept a lot

Here for the gear
 

Have not dared to open the PDF, but the video and website say a lot without saying anything. There's no demo that I see.

I'd really like to hear some actual audio produced by that thing.
Quite intrigued though..

Its just shaped noise.

I'd sooner listen to random analog shaped noise, which loosely resembles the ocean surf, rather than the binaural stuff I listened to the other day which sounded harmonically broken and irritating, and in no way would help me sleep.

I think the cool thing about this is the tactile approach to using it and trying to reach the 'Living Stream' moment talked about in the manual.

It's a form of meditative therapy I guess?

Not musical but a cool idea for sure- similar to plasma lamps in a way.
