The surfaces of everyday objects are scanned and transformed into audible frequencies.
Playing the Instrument is a mixture of practice, anticipation, and serendipity.
A variety of everyday objects can be mounted into the instrument.
The instrument was built from aluminum tubes, white POM, black acrylic glass, a high precision distance measuring laser ( with the kind support of Micro-Epsilon ), a stepper motor, and a few bits and bobs.
A translator and controller module transforms the measured distance values into audible frequencies, notes, and scales. It also controlls the stepper-motor’s speed.
