We had another fantastic session this month with Stan Lewry from the Optosynth team fresh from their appearances at the opening of the new wing of Tate Modern and Music Tech Fest, Berlin. We had demonstrations of their new laser keyboard and laser mixing desk along with a lot of other new toys!
Have you ever heard the sound of fishing line? Probably not! That’s why we are here. Our purpose is to present to you materials like never before. You can hear the Fishing line as it stretches due to the weight of the hanging blade. The recording was made using our Frame Project. Below is a high fidelity recording of the miraculous phenomenon of elasticity.
The fishing line was directly knotted on the hooked Piezo discs. This knotting technique perhaps facilitated the stretching of the fishing line, allowing us to hear the speaking length of the string between the hooks and the hanging blade.
More Laser Sounds with OptoNoise
Following our last meetup’s indulgence with the sounds of lasers, in this meetup we continue to gaze in awe at the ceiling, as laser beams hits intricately patterned spinning discs, creating a beautiful display of sounding reflections.
Behold! A glorified button with a Screen!
Thank you very much for the great attendance, and a truly energetic and inspiring meetup!
