Milk-truck music

Milk-truck music


Scaling up from the usual MIDI-to-solenoid designs – the Tonefloat milk/music delivery team plays the bottles while mobile.

Originally commissioned by Walk the Plank for the inaugural and very first Manchester Art Car Parade, the ‘People’s Prize’ winner >> tonefloat << continues to entertain and delight with its sub-lime fusion of form and function, revelling in the grand tradition of the English Eccentrics. Milkbottles have a pretty harsh tone when empty, but when filled with 'milk' to different levels a semblance of tonal scale emerges, and the fun begins...

Artcar stars from across the pond – maybe they’d consider flying the truck in for Maker Faire Austin?

    Maybe we could cross the pond itself, on a raft of plastic milkbottles….

    Cheers for the posting Colin.
