Welcome to the « 3Dvarius » website, the first fully playable electric violin created by 3D printing technology and based on the model of a real Stradivarius violin. Printed as a single piece, it departs from traditional musical instrument production technology.
Combining the precision and power of 3D-printing with ancient violin-making skills, its innovative design, in the service of violinist, marks a further step towards the perfect symbiosis between musician and instrument.

Background video information:
I describe how I made a stop motion animation of a phonograph needle in an LP groove using an electron microscope. I also show electron micrographs of other recording media.

If you plug an audio signal into an oscilloscope, you can see an exact representation of the same waves that reach your ear as sound waves. That’s pretty much the closest possible correlation between image and sound.
Oscilloscopes are used to measure voltages. Audio signals are voltages before they reach the speakers, where they are converted into sound waves that travel through the air. But apart from the useful capability of measuring these voltages, oscilloscopes also look great. Particularly the old analog ones with cathode ray screens.
The beam of electrons draws a bright green dot. If two audio channels (i.e. a stereo signal) are used as input, it’s possible to use one channel to move this dot up and down, and the other one to move it left and right, like on an Etch A Sketch board, just much faster. The brightness varies, depending on the speed of it’s movement, making the image look smooth and kind of organic. I’m using a Tektronix D11 5103N, which has a particularly large and clear screen.
In 1900 the Bacardí family helped liberate Cuba. So as dusk fell on Cuban Independence day we celebrated freedom by releasing bats across the world.
Experimental movie and soundtrack.
Video was edited with Kdenlive on Debian jessie GNU/Linux.
Soundtrack was programmed with KORG DSN-12 on Nintendo 3DSLL and recorded with ZOOM Q4.
sound art installation
in my series windfields
urban wind is an installation taked from my serie windfields. the devices of the serie windfields have in common that they rely, in one way or another, to the dynamic characteristics of the wind _ the air flux. in urban wind, they are wind sensors are installed in strategic points of the city [ e.g. ::: intersections, bridges, tunnels, parks, rooftops . . . ].
the velocity and direction of the wind will be analyzed and than transmit by wifi to a group of accordions that will emit a euphonic soundscape. public can ear the pulmonary dynamics of the city trought each accordeons bellows.the differents harmonies are created by the wind flow.
presented for the first time in korea at the incheon international digital art festival 2010.
Vectr pairs well with Make Noise gear for some experimental noodling. This video features Vectr firmware 2.0. Vectr is generating clock beginning with the tap tempo set up at the very beginning. The left Vectr is controlling the Phonogene on the left. The right Vectr is controlling the MMG filter and the Erbe-Verb on the right. The left Vectr is generating clock which is fed to all other module’s clock input. The result is sonic awesomeness. Make that with your plug-in!
Aodyo introduced the Sylphyo – a new wind instrument MIDI controller.
Aodyo expects the Sylphyo wind instrument controller to be available around the first of next year, priced at 700-800 Euros. Details are to come at the Aodyo site.
Babham have a super master programer in his team of scientists, that makes good arduino hacking and mega strong laser light instruments! Now Sirqus Alfon can finally make playing with Lasers and make good best show on earth with touch of magic!!!
