Sounding PET bottle


We want to create a bottle with a loudspeaker on (or in) the bottom.

Interaction:
  • opening/closing
  • drinking (full/empty bottle)
  • tilting (pour/drink)
>
* shaking
  • filling up
>
* (various movments/contingencies)

Targets:
  • additional Identificationpossibility for Brands and Products
>
* addressing target group (z.B. teenagers, kids, special groups, …)
  • sounds that support or irritate
>
* experience, gag or emotional effect
>
  • a sound that reminds people to drink more often
>

Steps:
  • Sound research, experiments, definition (for each action)
  • set sounds to the videoscenarios of the interactions
>
* if there is time left: building a mockup

Sound ideas:
  • opening:
    • continuous changing sound
>
>
    • like leaving a tunnel
  • >>
    • switching from a small to a big room
  • >>
    • silent -> loud
    • reverberation
>
** jingle
    • vacuumsound ("Blobb") while removing the cap
    • ascending
  • >>
>
* closing:
    • sucking
  • >>
    • bursting soap bubble
  • >>
    • descending
>
* opened bottle standing around:
    • silent atmospheric sound
    • energy sound (electricity, current)
  • >>
    • vibranting sound
  • >>
    • humming sound
  • >>
>
* drinking:
    • rhythmic, repeating, increasing (full > empty bottle)
    • energy
    • metaphor of charging the batteries
  • >>
    • electricity
    • magic
    • (full/empty bottle)
>
* pouring:
>
    • like drinking but more regula rhythm
  • >>
    • (full/empty bottle)

* shaking:
    • two mixing sounds
  • >>
    • painful
    • explosions
    • storm
    • water at the begining foam at the end
  • >>
>
* filling up:
    • increasing
    • collecting energy
  • >>
    • waterdrops in a cave
  • >>
  • (various movments/contingencies)
