Maker Story

Play Back

Handcrafted from sustainable wood in Brooklyn, NY, brandnewnoise sound recorders let kids explore their voices in a decidedly non-plastic, non-digital way. They can record a message or music, then play it back at regular speed, or at a faster or slower pitch. Artist Richard Upchurch came up with the idea during a large, rather loud family vacation. With each child in the group came a noisy, plastic toy. The experience inspired Richard to design a different kind of noisemaker for his nephew—one that required nothing but his nephew’s own voice and imagination. During show and tell at his nephew’s school, Richard’s creation created quite a buzz. All the kids wanted one. The rest is brandnewnoise history. The Lil' Mib is a message recording box complete with pitch control and a flag to indicate that a new message awaits. Loopy Lou is a sound recording device with a loop switch, pitch control, and output. Modern and minimalist, with a touch of nostalgia, brandnewnoise gives voice to a new generation of sound.
