I’d like to make something along the lines of this interesting box:
I have previously made passive boxes meaning they are not powered but using circuits like Mutable’s Ears I’ve amplified the contact mics. I have experience at building circuits from kits but I’m just not sure where to start with something like this.
Does anyone have any circuit designs with guide notes for building an acoustic box of a similar type? I want to use springs, strings, motors, solenoids, contacts etc to create a range of different noises - rhythmic and otherwise.
Interested in more knowledgeable or experienced experimenters opinions on where to get started. I’m particularly at a loss regarding wiring and power.
