La Diantenne

– a receiver of my intentions


La Diantenne V2

This is La Diantenne in its current state


(May 2015)

Within the last months, I built a completely new La Diantenne: version 2. Aiming to include all the experience by building and playing version 1 and implementing knowledge from research have grown me and the instrument a lot.











A short compilation of my presentation during HKU Studium Generale last spring (in Dutch):

Also read a few reviews about Diantenne v.2 by Steve Benford and 3voor12.


La Diantenne V.1

This self-built electronic instrument is an interface which is becoming able to translate my personal musical expressions. Having a background as a cello- and doublebass player, I’ve created the first version of La Diantenne: an instrument with only string. This string does not vibrate, but is able to close a current cirquit with a variable voltage as output. This output is converted to digital data (Arduino). I use this data to influence musical parameters and structures.

La Diantenne now works with my voice as input, a pitchtracker and a grainsynthesizer in SuperCollider. The instrument is constantly in progress.

The video below contains a short impression of how la Diantenne now works and how it sounds (improv, June 2014).
