An Instrument for the Sonification of Everyday Things

Created by Dennis P Paul, "An Instrument for the Sonification of Everday Things" is a musical instrument which rotates everyday things, scans their surfaces, and transforms them into audible frequencies. A variety of everyday objects can be mounted into the instrument. Their silhouettes define loops, melodies and rhythms. Thus mundane things are reinterpreted as musical notation. The instrument was built from aluminum tubes, white POM, black acrylic glass, a high precision distance measuring laser,a stepper motor, and a few bits and bobs.
