werkschouw 15-12-2010: the light sequencer

I’ve been working a lot with homemade electronics in various projects this semester and for the werkschouw(half term evaluation) I made this light sequencer installation. It consists of a screen divided into 8 seperate sections, each equiped with a light sensor housed in a pyramid. When the sequencer cycles through the 8 steps it plays a pitch according to the amount of light in each section. I also added a filter and 3 different modes to make it a little more interesting. All of the sound is generated by the handmade circuitboard, no computer is involved.
