ClusterChord is a musical instrument that allows multiple performers to trigger sounds through a tangible sequencer interface. The sounds are produced acoustically, using a variety of plucked and buzzing strings.
This instrument was designed by Ed Devane specifically for this exhibition. Devane is an Irish sound artist and designer whose work covers beat production, instrument building, interactive installations and educational workshops.
I wrote the code for the embedded microprocessors. This involved reading multiple Hall effects sensors and conductive panels, outputting RGB values to LED arrays, and control voltages to a variety of actuators.
