At Gizmodo Gallery '09: Ghostly Discovery Listening Station

Illustration for article titled At Gizmodo Gallery 09: Ghostly Discovery Listening Station

The Ghostly Discovery music app for the iPhone is a favorite around Gizmodo, and their custom listening station built especially for Giz Gallery is a pretty slick tech demo in its own right as well.


If you're unfamiliar, the Ghostly Discovery app will automatically stream playlists based on the mood, tempo, and sound you're looking for. It then compiles the list with tracks from record label Ghostly International—purveyors of quality electronic music and home to artists such as Matthew Dear, Dabrye and The Chap .


But back to the booth—it's a joy to look at. The Ghostly logo is linked to the iPhone app, so that when you select your mood color for the playlist, the booth color changes accordingly, and a light beams up to the ceiling above. Developed by O2 Creative Solutions, the team developed a custom rig consisting of a Mac Mini that talks to the iPod touch and relays that info to the Philips Color Kinetics lightbulb (which is connected to a DMX controller).

Basically, the beautiful simplicity of the Ghostly Discovery Listening Station makes it one of the better things at Giz Gallery. You should really come check it out for yourself. You can also play Beatles Rock Band and fiddle with ridiculously small drills.

this is a cool app to be sure. I just found "24 Hours: The Starck Mix". The music is streaming and changes as the time does. It is only available for 30 days. Get it while you can if you've enjoyed "Ghostly Discovery".
