vtol’s ‘you, me and all these machines’ Interacts Vocalist with Robotic Device (Powered by Arduino, Pure Data, and LEDs for Conducting the Score) | #ArtTuesday

This is a pretty wild artwork. The swiping microphone and pulsating LED and other effects make for some pretty intriguing sound patterns – not to mention the intriguing visual of the vocalist wearing the unit on their head. In classic ::vtol:: fashion the device is beautifully made too.

“You, me and all these machines” is a performance for voice and electronic devices. The vocalist puts on his or her head a specially designed wearable interface tool to interact with the voice and display a visual score. Technically, the device consists of several elements: a narrowly directional microphone driven by a motor; an LED strip that shows the vocalist score; remote control with a joystick used by the second participant to control the interface. Shifting the microphone against the mouth makes it possible to achieve interesting sound effects, and makes it easier to manipulate the vocalist’s voice. The LED line consisting of 10 diodes is a very primitive, but effective and convenient way of interacting with the vocalist, and the way of interpreting the values ​​is predetermined before each performance. During the performance, a sound canvas is formed, thereby changing the dynamics, consisting of a set of looped fragments created within voice and interface processing elements, without using other methods to generate sounds.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more.
