Musik aus der Batterie [Music out of the Battery]
The first impulse for this project was certain dynamics, which
occurred through intentionally causing defects in electronic toy
pianos. It was the discovery of unexplored resources in small, cheap
sound chips. Unfortunately, over time the dynamics got stronger and the
possibilities of manipulation and modulation smaller, until finally the
chips were completely destroyed. The low voltage method allows easier
access to those resources without causing any damages to the equipment.
These chips are able to make musical decisions and compositions. They
just need to be stimulated to get it.
