MICRO PROJECTS

STEAMPUNK HEADPHONES

 

A set of Headphones from the 1930ties with membranes from the AKG K451 Headphones.  On the right earpiece an old clock-mechanism was added. 

 

SCREW WORK

 

A pointless robot designed to throw away a screw. It also comments its actions and emotional state through serial communication.  

 

ARTECHRA TK one

The TK one is a expressive and intuitive midi-controller made for the musician
Toju Kae. It features a touch slider, distance sensor and a capacitive touch button. 

E-MA1

 

E-MA1 Is a walking robot operated through finger movement. In principle it is a electronic puppet on a string, wich uses electricity instead of strings to transfer the movement of the fingers to the movements of the limbs. It walks with its front legs while its back is dragged along on wheels, reminding of the first creatures which came on land. Thereby its name E(evolution) MA(machine).

MORNING MOUSE

A computer mouse in shape of a coffee cup designed for the St. Interface competition at the University of Art in Linz. The cursor is moved by moving the cup, to scroll the liquid container is turned on top of the lower part of the cup. Left and right click are performed using a copper spoon which conducts electricity through the liquid to either the right or left copper wire which also double as the handle.

The sugar cube is the receiver of the wireless coffee cup mouse.

SWEETSPOTTING

Created during the Waves Hackathon, this device automatically directs an Acouspade (directional speaker) to the listener by tracking him/her using a Xbox Kinect sensor and tilting the X and Y axis using two wiper motors. Sounds are recorded from the participant, modified in a MOD Device and played back to the listener through the Acouspade. When the participant changes his / her location, the system will follow while the acoustic space changes, creating an intime sonic space perceived only by a one listener. 

FIRST EAR PERSPECTIVE

 

In this installation a drone hovers through a virtual sonic environment. The listener is surrounded by speakers recreating the acoustic perspective of the drone and its emotional reaction to the environment.

This project was realized at the university of arts in Linz

in collaboration with Patricia Cadavid

NURB SPHERE

A feedback instrument made from a balloon containing seven microphones, a speaker and LED`s. By deforming the balloon, the distance between each microphone to the center speaker changes, thereby creating a feedback. Each microphone channel is tuned to a different note, allowing melodies to be played by changing the shape of the instrument.

This project was realized at the university of arts in Linz
in collaboration with Jelena Veljkovic.

DRØN​

DRØN is the predecessor of SONØR. everyday objects are placed on the surface of the barrel shaped instrument containing a vibration speaker and piezo microphone, creating a feedback through the object. The sound can be influenced by changing or manipulating the objects.
