Wistiki by Starck

Wistiki is a very small digital tracking device designed by Philippe Starck. You attach Wistiki to something to enable you to find it with your smartphone if it becomes lost. I was commissioned to design the audio brand mnemonic – the brief was to embody the simplicity and fun of the product.

Supermarket in C

An experiment in ‘public sound’ – the checkout tills in this supermarket are re-programmed to emit their ‘beeps’ as a random note from within the scale of C Major. Rather than the usual monotone sonic assault, the resulting sound is an evolving atmosphere of electronic ‘music’.

Supermarket: Sainsbury’s, Kingston

Concept / Audio: Malcolm Goldie

Quarter Mile Groove – limited edition artwork

The recording translates the length of its vinyl groove into audio allowing listeners to experience the 1/4 mile length of the spiral as the record is played. Every inch of the needle’s path is audible in the form of a click, each foot as a beat and distances of 10 feet are heard as a blip. These sounds gradually slow as the stylus approaches the center, (the stylus travels less distance in the groove with each revolution of the record). Along the way, the voice of the narrator mentions the horizontal dimensions of particular objects.
