Light Hum


Light Hum is a AC sequencer console that allows the musician to control the brightness and sequence of 8 light bulbs. Each bulb has a photocell theremin attached to it to convert the light frequency into audio frequency. I am using different photocells/phototransitors, resistors and capacitors to generate different tones. The heart of the AC sequencer is a board designed by Mark Kleback and Ezer Lichtenstein. Check it out, its pretty freaking awesome, This project is completely analog, no computers were used for the audio or the visuals. The above performance was shot at Glasslands in Brooklyn on December 9th, 2012.

For NIME I am putting together an instrument that takes the buzz that is produced from lightbulbs and enhancing them to create music. I will be experimenting with photocells and piezo discs to amplify the sound from the bulbs and will be playing with fluorescent and neon tubes.

Roulette Composing

Inspired by chat roulette, cute roulette and all the other roulette websites out there I created a musical composition roulette using YouTube videos with the search queries being, percussion, guitar_solo, bass_solo and screaming.
