FEEDBACK MOBILE - Speaker Ball & Microphone Satelites
7 microphone/preamp satelites orbit a ball of speakers(at different distances) generating different overtones as they pass each speaker.
By applying air pressure, a PET bottle can create an astonishingly clear and brilliant sound. The ingenious thing about it: the bottle is a sound generator and sound box in one. The higher the pressure, the higher the surface tension of the bottle and th…
Hacking Nature's Musicians
"Hacking Nature Musicians" is an ecosystem of sound-generating electronic devices made with discrete hardware (no digital code or recordings). My circuits generate sound such as birdsong and insect chirping. I also refer to this practice as "electronic n…
