"The Wire and The Box"

My new instrument

[ 2012 ]

Inspired by a contrabass, this instrument can be both played traditionally (plucked, bowed, slapped...) as well as autonomously. With the use of piezo contact microphones and tactile transducers, the instrument can in effect play itself. By creating an electronically controlled feedback loop through the instrument, the internal resonance of the instrument box and wire is explored and transformed into a musical event.

During construction...

Managed not to cut myself with broken glass, nor stab myself with metal wire... it was a good day
