A paper “violin”, amplified with a contact microphone. It just barely works.
It’s not quite an instrument, but there’s a chance it’ll come in handy someday. It would’ve been much easier to buy one of these things. Thanks to Adam and Noah for helping me figure out the machine tools!
I designed the 8-bit violin during last year’s instrument-a-day. I ended up donating violin 0x01 to Flux Factory’s fundraising auction. I made this one, pretty much identical to the first, for and with the help of violinist Patti Kilroy, who tried it out for this video. This is the first time she’s played the finished violin!
