I have done a bit of circuit bend in this amazing phone toy from Jumbo BEBE store. I have used two light dependent resistors (LDR) with different values to control the curcuit flow. This was done as a part of a piece that me and Sebastiano Dessanay are working on called- Double bass and toy music.
Wirelles switch box
I have also built a wireless switch box using the Arduino Bluetooth board. The box will also be used to control a simple MAX/MSP patch that will record,playback and transform the sounds form the toys and the double bass.

είναι κακότροπο θεριό, κι ούτε θνητός κανένας,
Τη μέρα τρεις φορές ξερνάει, και τρεις φορές ρουφάει·
να μη σου τύχη και βρεθής την ώρα που ρουφήξη,
τι δε θα σε ξεγλύτωνε μηδέ του κόσμου ο σείστης.

Sebastiano Dessanay Double Bass
Monday, 28 September 2009
This is the second piece from the concert. Few mouths ago we try an experimental improvisation approach between Sebastiano Dessanay on double bass and me on live electronics. After that we realize that the outcome was good material and we decided to develop it further. Here is an extension of this collaboration with Sebastiano were the bass is taking the form of the Cyclops.
I am recording live, improvised fragments from the bass and then I am feeding the sounds back to the audience through a surround system. The recorded fragments are layered (up to three for now) and automatically looped and processed live through the Wii remote accelerometer that I am holding in my right hand. The surround distribution is controlled through a custom made sensor glove the I am wearing in my left hand.
