About Bellyhorn

  • Instrument to sing through, results in low (under)tones
  • Sounds like this
  • First design drafts:

WollenKoker

Wollen koker/Woolen Funnel/Bellyhorn

How it works:

  • Within the belly there’s a tone/drone
  • You can influence the tone by singing through it
  • You can influence pitch by lifting the horn
  • Loudness of singing and how far your head is positioned in the horn defines final volume

About Pulseyarn

Pulseyarn is a pendulum-based musical instrument. If the player swings its clapper, he or she can place objects in its orbit. Whenever the swing ‘scans’ an object in its path, a sound rings, depending on which object/which shape is underneath the clapper at that moment. Objects can be moved continuously and a big, physical, mirrored rhythm instrument bursts into life…

 

Inspiration for this instrument:

(Mariska de Groot)

 

(Myriam Bleau)

Pendulum (enkel, zonder scharnier = statisch ritme) (dubbel = chaotisch ritme)

en deze is helemaal fantastisch:
