Pocket Toshi is a prototype of a music application for Nokia N95 by Teemu Korpilahti and Jenna Sutela.

The first mode of use:

A midi chimes (1 octave) placed vertically on the right side of the screen and 4 percussion samples placed on the left side of the screen.

A round-shaped cursor detecting motion (tilting) based on values from the N95 accelerometer.

When the cursor hits a key on the right side of the screen it triggers the corresponding sound object (midi/wav). The same happens on the left side of the screen with the four drum sounds. There is also an additional gesture sound (a clap) by Marcus Malka to be found when moving the phone rapidly along its Y axis.

The second mode of use:

Using the record loop command on the application menu, the user can change the chimes/drums view into a percussion-led interface modifying both the sounds and the graphics on the go.

In this mode of use tilting the mobile phone triggers a different drum sample in each of the four corners of the screen. The drums are recorded from the first sound played to the point when the user chooses to stop recording on the application menu.

After the drum loop is finished the application switches back to the chimes/drums view. The chimes and drums can now be played on top of the ready made drum beat by choosing play loop on the menu.

Pocket Toshi was made with Python at Rapid Mobile Application Prototyping workshop by Jürgen Scheible.
