The inspiration for FUSE's form and visuality came from several directions:
Earlier prototypes The product's functionality
One of FUSE's features is a double drum rack, played as a timbrel the idea came from Cultural influence
Through the development process, I have made the connection between FUSE and the cultural phenomenon of a leader who uses musical instruments to lead his following. When observing a DJ performing, we can notice how the crowd gathers together, dances, and applauds the DJ as if he was a leader performing some kind of sacred ritual.
In the bible, these Phenomena appear in Miriam's Song of the Sea: "Then Miriam the prophet, Aaron's sister, took a timbrel in her hand, and all the women followed her, with timbrels and dancing."
