I started this project in 2008, as I was longing for an instrument allowing me to create digital music in an improvisational, intuitiv and immediate manner. The SENSOR SOUND MACHINE is a sensor-based digital musical instrument comprising an arduino microprocessor, ultrasonic sensors, infrared sensors, solar panels, a UC-33 MIDI controller and the music software Max/MSP. Its sonic outcome is generated by digital feedback, which can be controlled in real-time using light and body motion. Concerts with the SENSOR SOUND MACHINE have been described as listening to the inside of an atom. One might call this kind of music 21st century "digital free jazz"!
