Dipping duck orchestra


Kittclark writes in –

Music randomly generated by dipping ducks (AKA happy birds, drinking birds, dippy birds, happy ducks… etc). Using the basic parts of a keyboard, each duck is hooked up to a note of the octave. As their beak touches the water in the glass the circuit is completed and the sound is produced – Link.

    I’m reminded of the piece created by Trimpin that used drinky birds to control the speed and direction of a number of turntables. Here’s the controller and here is one of the turntable stations, both at a retrospective exhibit last year.
