"Interactive robotic music instrument/installation. Transparent plastic pipe of 2 meters long with passive magnet ball and magnetic field detectors inside. Each sensor triggers different sound synthesis algorithms. Can be controlled wireless using cellphone gyroscope/accelerometer, or using custom controllers.

::vtol:: ivy - 240 Step Sequencer

::vtol:: ivy from ::vtol:: on Vimeo.

The latest creation from ::vtol::.

"Interactive sound installation. Sequencer-synthesizer with 240 steps, that allows to create rhythmic compositions. Object has complex control system with possibility to add or delete "voices", change tempo of whole sequence or individually for each voice, to change number and direction of steps.

The project is created

"Motorgan is an electromagnetic/electromechanical organ based on 3 dc motors of different size. The speed of each motor is controlled by voltage changes via touch keyboard with 24 keys. Keyboard is split into 3 parts (registers) for each motor, so it's possible to play chords/polyphonic lines by taking one note from each register. Electromagnetic

"I’ve came up with the idea of this device during a long flight, when my iPod earbuds (the standard white ones) got caught up yet again. The wires of this manufacturer are covered with special rubber that grants the earbuds a unique feature: they do not fracture or bend; they just intertwine endlessly, which prolongs their lifespan and prevents contact

"Interactive installation, robot.

A wheeled remote-controlled robot roams around the horizontal black-striped canvas. These stripes are nothing else than audiocassette tapes. The robot is equipped with two tape heads to read off the magnetic tape. When the sound head crosses the tape or moves along it, it reads off the sound and forwards it over the

"Kinetic sound object. Model of artificial satellite of the Earth / inhabited sound art space station. The apparatus is a system for a research of sound swirling of anthroposphere. The device works in autonomous and extremely abstract way. Featuring a built-in radio FM transmitter, it transmits radio signals at frequency 99mHz being available for

The object records sounds from the surrounding space, selecting only the loudest ones (those which exceed a certain level). Then, the machine puts together a composition consisting of these sounds organised in the order they were recorded. In fact, the object excludes the silence and composes the

Interactive object.

The project is an instrument for communication between two people by means of visualising the electroencephalograms of two members, which are translated into sound, mechanical motion, and video images. Two participants should try to synchronize their minds, guided by the pitch of the tone, visualisation and movements of mechanical parts.

"This project is an autonomous light-music installation. The main element of the piece is the construction fixed on the wall, with 7 powerful red lasers which send light horizontally. The laser rays pass through several fans rotating on high speed, placed along whole length of the installation. The fans serve as dividers-modulators which turn



::vtol:: red

::vtol:: red from ::vtol:: on Vimeo.

A new creation from ::vtol:: based on the concepts and ideas of light-sound objects from 60-80s

See http://vtol.cc/red for the inspiration behind this project and additional details. The following is a short excerpt on the functional aspects.

"The object works autonomously, by algorithm with many accidental events tied to feedback, with sensors defining
