TONEWHEELS is an experiment in converting graphical imagery to sound, inspired by some of the pioneering 20th Century electronic music inventions.
In this three day workshop from 24-27 October 2009, participants built a simple light-to-sound converter and DC motor controller, and then began to experiment with drawing sounds onto transparent "tonewheels". The workshop ended in a group performance and an invitation to the audience to try out the instruments for themselves.
As you can see, both the participants and the audience had a great time with this. I did too! My thanks go to Galina Dimitrova, Rene Beekman, Prof. Svetoslav Kokalov, Venelin Shurelov, DA Festival, National Academy of the Arts Sofia, Elena Kaludova and all the participants for a fantastic workshop in Bulgaria!
