Hilo: Domace Volt Orkester
Domače Volt Orkester will develop an AC/DC electric sequencer to build sound installations and performance instruments from domestic technologies.
Inspired by the works of Ujino Muneteru and Maywa Denki the Domače Volt Orkester seeks to re-purpose discarded technologies and create instruments and installations of new wonder. The detritus of domestic electrical goods will be given a new life – hairdryers, blenders, toasters, washing machines, toys, toothbrushes, cd-rom drives, phones, printers – can all be transformed into Orkesters via AC sequencers, interface hacks and interactive trickery.
The prototyping process will center around building an AC/DC sequencer - essentially a playable powerboard - that can be triggered via software, musical hardware (MIDI) or other interactive devices, such as pressure pads, motion sensors and cameras.
