NO PLUG SOUND MACHINE








HOW TO MAKE ELECTRONIC MUSIC WITHOUT CONVENTIONAL ELECTRICITY?

The light theremins and the LEDs benefit electricity from the earth batteries plant pots, and the mechanic core is a gramophone activated with hand power.
The main composition concept is Beat, Sample and Loop, reproducing an electronic rhythm - through the light theremins - combined with an analog sample - through the 78RPM record.
This machine is mainly created from recycled items and components, the two metals for the earth batteries once they are oxide, can be cleaned or replaced.

Ferns and tobacco are plants that resist and flourish in acidic soil. Depending on where the installation is located, the choice of the plants can be changed.
︎ ELECTRONIC MUSIC is intended by playing live  and having the possibility to modulate the following elements:
• PITCH : frequency-related scale (higher and lower associated with melodies)
• DYNAMICS : volume of the sound
• RHYTHM : periodic pattern in time

︎ CONVENTIONAL ELECTRICITY means producing electrical power without recurring to conventional technology, as electricity supply, solar panels and other devices, but focusing on alternative clean energy, harnessing the natural world around us.
