MONARCH Interactive exhibit

MONARCH Interactive exhibit

MONARCH is an idiophonic butterfly-shaped physical synth. Comprised of 38 magnetically-tunable oscillators, 4 kalimba elements, 6 strings, 2 removable steel picks, and a playable reverb spring. Contact mic’d internally with a piezo transducer, it combines the ability to play as a picked/plucked instrument as well as percussively.

Designed alongside a custom 3-scene real-time visualizer, the instrument and real-time digital interpretative computer graphics together comprise an interactive gallery exhibit.

You can see it live and play it for yourself Saturday, August 25 at SILENCE SOUNDS gallery in Guelph.
