Crowdsourcing Mornings: OneClock: Wake Up Better

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at:

Let’s save the alarms for fires, burglaries and submarines. We researched the best tones, tempos and frequencies to wake you up. Then we asked Jon Natchez from The War on Drugs to create a collection of musical compositions to lift you out of sleep in a peaceful, more natural way.

OneClock is as much a piece of art as it is a functional household object.

We believe the only thing better than sleep is waking up. Because that’s where all the love starts. We believe in waking up better, so you can live better and breathe better and think better.

Make your bedroom your sanctuary, without all the gadgets and devices that seem to sneak stress and distractions in between the sheets with you. OneClock is designed to disconnect, so all you have is you, your thoughts, and perhaps a significant other in bed with you – human, canine, or feline.

There’s a growing body of sonic research outlining the importance of waking up correctly and its effect on our mood and behavior. OneClock’s sounds are designed to wake you gently and reliably.

You deserve better, so we created a new way to wake up with Jon Natchez, renowned composer and multi-instrumentalist of The War on Drugs. OneClock’s compositions are original recordings, not available elsewhere, and feature 20+ instruments that create a warm, organic and non-digital soundtrack to start your day.

Humans can suffer from alarm fatigue and become desensitized to sounds they hear over and over. When OneClock’s alarm is activated, our AI music generator will randomly choose one of the songs stored on the clock’s solid state memory and remix it by adjusting the levels of each instrument or vocal for infinite combinations. It’s subtle, but noticeable and you will never hear OneClock’s songs the same way twice. Ever.

Warm, organic, minimalism meets an analog and tactile experience that’s built to last a lifetime with high quality, sustainably sourced components. In our current culture of Amazon/Walmart convenience, the approach we took was unorthodox. We prioritized design and quality over price to create a product that is enjoyable to experience amongst other cherished heirloom objects in your home.

As of February 8th, this project has raised $380,000 of their $20,000 goal. This project has 23 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $1, you will get project updates.  For a pledge of $314, you will get one OneClock.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
