The Optosonoria

Artist's statement:
The design concept for a real 'opto-electric' musical instrument that's currently in-progress. I have the opto-electrics done, and the housing will be started later this spring. It uses photocells to read shadow patterns projected onto a ground-glass surface. The tone is very rich and sonorous (thus the name) and depending on the shadow-patterns, has a range of timbres from theremin-like to buzzy-reed.
