The DIY Gramophone Made Out Of Paper.
Called the ‘Jónófón’, the paper gramophone consists of a plywood base, a paper cup, and a thick paper horn to amplify sound.
Yet another item to add to my list of nifty things I’d like to have. Too bad he hasn’t announced his release date yet.
Self-playing instruments that sense spectators, weather, and Twitter.
FOUND, an Edinburgh-based art collective and band, created this interactive sound installation made up of robotic self-playing instruments. The purpose is to explore the way stories and memories change with each telling.
At the heart of the installation is a vinyl record player and ten 7” records of familiar singles from pop music’s heyday…The vinyl controls a series of acoustic, self-playing musical instruments…
…the memories embodied in the installation will distort, evolve and warp depending on external influences: the time of day, the size of #UNRAVEL’s audience, the local weather, and what people are writing about the installation on twitter from moment to moment.
