▌▌▌▌▌▌▌▌▌ BURNING PIPES - The Pneumatic Orchestra
Kinetic audiovisual installation for burn
displayed during burn Selector Festival 2011
Movement of the cans is controlled by 9 independent stepper motors connected to the Arduino board while the sound is purely analogue - air pumped by 9 ordinary mattress pumps blows into the "whistles" at the top of plexiglass pipes. Tone is modulated by the current position of the can.
Lots of soldering, gluing, screwing, cutting and coding :)
We'd like to thank the whole Alter Art team for their open-mindedness and on-site support.
Great thanks for the soundtrack provided by Krzysztof Zimmermann (myspace.com/krzysztofzimmermann) a member of Few Quiet People label (fewquietpeople.com).
