Hand-powered synthesis with Exertion Instruments


Noah Vawter has been developing these rather awesome hand-powered electronic instruments at MIT’s Media Lab. Dubbed ‘exertion instruments’, they reconnect the players physical strength with the instruments volume. This brings a level of expression to electronic music that before seemed confined to traditional acoustics – plus no power strips/batteries! Check out the project research/documentation for relevant details. [via Hack a Day]
