Craft & Design Music

Michael Vorfeld creates sound installations using the noise that light bulbs make when they are turned on and off in a controlled manner. I like that the lights and sound are literally integrated, because they come from the same source. I’m assuming that the sounds are created because the metal conductors in the lamp are deformed due to magnetostriction– anyone have a better explanation? [via neatorama]
