Kinetic Sound Installation “Klangpendel”

+ concept and idea + MaxMSP implementation + AVR and Arduino implementation (c/c++) + electronics design and build +

“Klangpendel” by Maurice Braun and Tom Orr

+ 8-channel kinetc sound installation utilizing the doppler effect + sound an movements can be controlled and syncronized + 8 motor driven controlable pendulums with speakers at the bottom +


+ MaxMSP-based control software

+ custom made pendulum controller with Attiny2313

+ pendulum controllers communicate with master and give realtime feedback over pendulum positions, motor states, etc.

+ optical sensors track position of each pendulum

+ pendulums can be “cought” and released respectively by a switched electromagnet
