Table Music – planning

Table music is the temporary name for my final project.

I have sketched a rough plan for all the components and the communications between them:

TL:DR

A gear based music machine controlled by one rotary encoder mounted on a main handled gear. Players compose their own physical and musical compositions by placing gears on the peg board and editing their patters using physical buttons and digitally projected interface.

Components include:

  • computer running processing + Max Msp
  • Arduino
  • projector
  • kinect camera
  • Pegboard 35″X20″
  • 8 X 7 “acrylic gears with IR stickers
  • Rotary incoder
  • 2 X big push buttons
  • 1 X rotary slider
  • Long HDMI
  • 2 X Long USB Cable
