Short links for August 14th, 2008

Some interesting things I found on August 14th, 2008:

Joe McKay Cellphone Piano

# Cellphone Piano by Joe McKay

Joe writes:

Each key on the keyboard is wired into a key on a cell phone – as you play, you are also dialing. The channels are mixed together and amplified through speakers. Every sound the piano makes is generated by one of the four phones. The white keys play notes and the black keys are people saying the number out loud – English on the left hand and Spanish on the right. Some white keys were left over and I made those percussion instruments (the "*", "END", and "#" keys).

# littleBits – littleBits is an opensource library of discrete electronic components pre-assembled in tiny circuit boards. Just as Legos allow you to create complex structures with very little engineering knowledge, littleBits are simple, intuitive, space-sensitive blocks that make prototyping with sophisticated electronics a matter of snapping small magnets together. With a growing number of available modules, littleBits aims to move electronics from late stages of the design process to its earliest ones, and from the hands of experts, to those of artists, makers and designers.

# From Joystick to noisestick – Noistick- create a noise making device from a joystick with autofire. This is experimental electronics project to turn your old joysticks into nice sound devices with no external sound source needed.

DIY stand clamp for portable recorder

# DIY – stand clamp for portable recorder

Nolo writes:

When I shoot concerts, I often record audio off camera with a portable recorder. I needed a way to attach the recorder to the stand when I use a mic on top of a light stand. This bracket is made out of PVC pipe fitting, and will clamp onto the stand. If I extend the stand to get the mic 6' up, the recorder can still be lower so I can check settings easily.

# AUDIOTUTS – AUDIOTUTS is a blog for musicians, producers and audio junkies. It features tons of music, sound & audio tutorials.

# Electric Gongs – Electric Gongs is an interactive experimental music installation created by the de la maquina design group, and is on display at Austin Childrens Museum until Sept 2008.

# S2MIDI: Open Source Serial to MIDI Converter for Windows – S2MIDI is a windows program that attempts to read raw MIDI data coming in on a serial port and send it to an internal MIDI driver.
