Theremins are a little bit of an odd instrument to commence with, but [AphexHenry] made the decision to put a person the place no theremin has absent just before: into a baguette.
The “baguetophone” is a theremin and piezo-percussion instrument inside a hollowed-out baguette. Starting up with a Do-it-yourself theremin tutorial from Academy of Media Arts Cologne, [AphexHenry] additional some spice with a piezo pickup within the baguette to perform as a percussion instrument. One pointed out draw back of squeezing the instrument into this kind of an unusual enclosure is that the antenna does not reply as effectively as it might with a additional common arrangement. Outputs from the piezo and antenna are operate by way of Max/MSP on a laptop to switch the bread into a MIDI controller. Like lots of Do it yourself theremins, it seems that this develop neglects the volume antenna, but there is no reason you could not incorporate one particular. Maybe disguised as a piece of cheese?
Outside smuggling an instrument into a French café for a flash mob efficiency, this could also prove helpful if you’re a person who receives hungry whilst enjoying songs. We really do not advise snacking on the Arduino even if it is ROHS compliant while.
