Techno Chair

I am currently working on a series of prototypes that are being developed to be used in a live performance to open the East Anglian (first!) stage of this years’ Tour Of Britain.

The idea is to adapt mobility aids and devices in to instruments so that the equipment becomes reliant on the user rather than vice versa as is commonly the case.

We will build several drum machines by either amplifying the audio from simple piezo set-ups on each wheel, or by using the audio to trigger user-designed samples.

I will also build some crutches that use the resistance of the user’s touch to create drones from a simple amplification circuit and a walking frame that will act as pentatonic chime synth.
