Box organ + breath controller

Box organ + breath controller


From the MAKE Flickr pool

Ranjit returns with another compelling artifact on red, this time reusing a box formerly occupied by some smoked fish –

The keyboard is copper tape cut to shape. It’s tuned (approximately) to the twelve tone Just scale based on 2’s, 3’s, and 5’s. When the little red plug is plugged into the “No breath” jack, the thing plays at full volume without the breath controller.

Hmm, I wonder if he considered naming it “Fish-Breath”? Hit up Flickr for further details and a sound sample –Link
