Custom 3 oscillator light sensitive synth. Synth can be tuned by sliding the lid on and off. Other features include 9volt battery holder mounted on outside, power switch, 1/4 out, 3 way switch: LED ON/LED OFF/ STROBE ON, Rate and Brightness knobs controls for STOBE mode. Created this while I was in a group called, OMBOT:Noise, Art, Cult. This also hit Ebay today. More Ebay items to come in the next week.
Photo Synthesis 1 is a 3 oscillator light sensitive theremin. 2 of the oscillators are housed in the "viewing" part of the camera and are modulated by flashing LEDS that have a rate knob and an on/off switch. The third oscillator is housed in the camera and is only activated when you "Take A Picture." This quick sweep by the shutter causes a classic SCIFI laser gun kind of sound. Other features include power switch, Power LED, 1/4 out. Runs off 9volt battery easily acessed through rear door. Just put this on EBAY today check it out!
I have a bunch of old cameras someone gave me. Plan on making more of these, some much more complex.
ART ALL NIGHT 2012-THE DRONE SCOPE
This is the last thing I create while working in Ombot: Noise Art Cult. The Drone Scope is a drone synthesizer that uses 11 "Drone Oscillators" and 1 "Rhythm Oscillator" to create rhythmic drone landscapes that accompany touch based synthesizers that you play with your hands. This piece was designed by me and was constructed with the help of Shane Vanest for Lawrenceville's Art All Night 2012.
The Psychic Organsim is aninstallation I worked on when I was in Ombot with Shane Vanest to create CMOS synthesizers and one circuit bent Barbie Karaoke Machine that all connected into a custom built 8 step sequencer for an exhibit at Specter Studios called "ARTthrob."
By far my favorite circuit bent toy. I've circuit bent a handfull of these and are by far one of the easiest and most rewarding toys to circuit bend out there.. Haven't seen anyone else on the web yet who has modified these. Schematics, Videos, and more info to come soon.......
