Electromechanical Solenoid Orchestra

A kinetic, autonomous instrument performing generative music based on real-time weather and environmental data. ESO was installed as part of the Weather Tunnel project during the TransLife New Media Art Triennial at the National Art Museum in Beijing China, July and August 2011.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. Very cool. The Minnesota Science Museum has something like this, on a much larger scale. Called the Seismofon, it chimes based on seismic data from around the globe.

  2. Very well done!!! I have thought of something along these lines myself. Would you mind telling me where you got the solenoids?

    Many thanks
