After ten years, I’m quitting the Instrument-a-Day project. I’m declaring this February to be COLLAB FEB, in which I will try to do as many very small sound/music collaborations as possible. Get in touch if you want to join!
Here’s nearly every instrument from ten years of Februaries, five per second. Music by the Glass Bees and me: glassbees.com
I added a little electric motor to the minitracker [previously] and made a loop disk of my favorite bit from The Vapours by Anna Meredith. Minitracker even makes a tiny accidental light show, a tiny bit like the music video.
The mechanical tracker was too unreliable, so I made a nearly-as-unreliable optical version.
A precious useless object.
It’s playing the first digits of Pi.
