Theometrica (first prototype)
99-Prepared Needles, Distance RangeFinder, Sound generation software.
Oscar Palou & Alexander Müller-Rakow.
Exposed in ImageTransfer; Universität der Künste, November 2013, Berlin.
Inspired by acupuncture, this sculptural instrument is designed to control sound elements in real time by fixing specific pins into a spinning disk. 99 prepared needles, a distance rangefinder and Max/MSP sound generation software work together to let you use the pins to create geometric shapes that are translated into sound.
