SpiderHarp (Ross Hatton, Andrew Otto, and Chet Udell)
More about SpiderHarp-
The SpiderHarp is an enlarged (4 ft. diameter), biologically inspired artificial spider web that has an accelerometer array mounted to a plastic spider at the center of the web. The location of a plucked string in the web is detected by applying signal processing to the vibrations measured by the accelerometers. Position, amplitude, and distance data from each pluck is translated into sonic objects, turning the web into a digital instrument. Sound is played back in 8-channel surround, with pluck location corresponding to a spatial speaker channel.
Ross Hatton, Andrew Otto, and Chet Udell. SpiderHarp is supported, in part, by National Science Foundation Grant #1504428.
Soundbox is co-curated by Mike Gamble and Andrew Nigon. Special thanks to Dana Reason, Jason Fick, Ross Hatton, and Chet Udell
