The laser drum microphone measures the physical vibration of the drum head directly. We use this to run the sidechain of a standard gate to achieve excellent bleed suppression and reduced false triggering. This allows the microphones to stay off until the drum is physically hit, giving a tighter, more controlled drum sound.
…but most importantly, we did it with lasers.

Korinsky Studio consists of Abel, Carlo and Max Korinsky. They mainly focus on their shared passion: exploring the possibilities of using sound in vertical surfaces. 3845 m/s is their newest installation using their own software, in a former coal power plant in Berlin.

A wiimote and a candle is used to control the pitch of a TR-909 ride cymbal. This works also with other infra red sources such as a halogen lamp, a pocket lighter or the Wii “sensor bar” (which actually isn´t sensor).
Prototype is the artistic representation of 5 years spent researching advanced juggling concepts. This work unites a series of collaborations and is divided into two main parts. One half of the show is dedicated to new juggling skills, inspired by new juggling props. The other part makes live music for the show through the juggling itself. The result is a rare collection of juggling imagery that has never been seen before.

A MIDI synthesizer is controlled by a Wiimote. As infrared source, a pocket lighter is used. It works also with a candle, a halogen lamp or most other IR sources. Up/down controlles the pitch of the oscillator, while left/right controlles the cutoff frequency of the

Ever since I created the first version of this video a year ago I’ve been wanting to try it again with more water and better lighting / footage. This is a really fun project and when you first see the results, chances are your jaw will drop. The main thing to keep in mind for this project is that you need a camera that shoots 24 fps.
The effect that you are seeing can’t be seen with the naked eye. The effect only works through the camera. However, there is a version of the project you can do where the effect would be visible with the naked eye. For that project, you’d have to use a strobe light.
For this project you’ll need:
A powered speaker
Soft rubber hose
Tone generating software
24 fps camera
Run the rubber hose down past the speaker so that the hose touches the speaker. Leave about 1 or 2 inches of the hose hanging past the bottom of the speaker. Secure the hose to the speaker with tape or whatever works best for you. The goal is to make sure the hose is touching the actual speaker so that when the speaker produces sound (vibrates) it will vibrate the hose.
Set up your camera and switch it to 24 fps. The higher the shutter speed the better the results. But also keep in the mind that the higher your shutter speed, the more light you need. Run an audio cable from your computer to the speaker. Set your tone generating software to 24hz and hit play.Turn on the water. Now look through the camera and watch the magic begin. If you want the water to look like it’s moving backward set the
frequency to 23hz. If you want to look like it’s moving forward in slow motion set it to 25hz.
Jordan: “About to leave for SXSW and practice a little Seaboard!”
Evolved from the piano keyboard, the Seaboard is a new musical instrument which bridges the gap between acoustic and digital music by putting the control of pitch, volume and timbre right at your fingertips.
The piano keyboard meets the future in a revolutionary new approach to music
The Seaboard is a radically new musical instrument based on the design of a piano keyboard. Its patent-pending approach brings together a traditional approach to making music with cutting edge digital technology in a way that is so intuitively tactile that you can play it with your eyes closed.
This approach enables performers, composers and producers to exert unprecedented real-time control of all the major characteristics of sound: volume, pitch and timbre. If you can play the piano you already know how to play the Seaboard, and it literally puts a new world of expressive possibilities right at your fingertips.
The core team brings together a wide range of skills – product, industrial and interaction design, software engineering, business management, and of course music production, administration, management, teaching, networking and strategy and a passion for creating more intuitive ways of making music.
In early 2011, Seaboard successfully entered the Incubator.

A limited edition of 88 GRANDs will be available for pre-order worldwide starting in April 2013. In recognition of its provenance, each will be named after a particular note on the piano keyboard, from A0 to C8.
Our cutting-edge SoundDial software gives you complete control of the Seaboard’s sound and unprecedented integration between software and hardware.
