Reading my body: A sound controller that uses a tattoo as a music score #MusicMonday #arduino

NewImage

Artist and maker Dmitry Morozov sent us a blog tip about his latest project: a sound controller that uses a tattoo as a music score. It’s one of the coolest DIY Instruments we’ve seen. Be sure to check it out in action in the video below.

this is a special instrument that combines human body and robotic system into a single entity that is designed to automate creative process in an attempt to represent the artist and his instrument as a creative hybrid. The device consists of a railing with comfortable hand holders and two parallel, but offset from each other black lines’ sensors that move along the arm using a stepper motor. It is equipped with a 3-dimensional Wii remote controller that uses the OSC protocol in order to give a possibility of additional expression achieved by moving hand in space.

the tattoo is specifically designed to contain the maximum number of variable time slots between triggers. It is possible to manually control the velocity of sensors’ movement, direction and step length, that altogether gives an infinite number of variations of reading patterns from hand. In addition, all control parameters and sensors’ movements can be programmed to operate autonomously.

typical setup: hand controller + Nord Modular G2 and Symbolic Sound Kyma X + OSCulator

– black line sensors

– stepper motor

– arduino nano

– wii remote
