Rotation to Sound

In this workshop participants created a crude instrument. The instrument consists of a small electrical motor as sound-source and an interface made from cardboard and pushbuttons. The electrical motor used is a stepper motor, which produces resonant frequencies that resemble musical tones for different speeds. During the workshop we created a control signal (based on a 555-timer) and connected this to the motor driver. After we assembled the electronics we played with interface design. The resulting object is an electro-acoustic experimental instrument.
