Initially as a tool for performance, the sequencer became more diverse in it’s applications, as I experimented with sequencing a range of objects. Using a microcontroller, it can control 12V and 240V mains switching to turn on and off most kinds of electrical devices. Anything that can plug into a wall socket can be sequenced.
Above the sequencer in it’s most basic form with nothing connected. You can hear the relays clicking and see the lights as each channel is activated.
Above a close up of the relays. The aural side of this machine turned out to be quite endearing.
This expression, I understand as a voice. It is the result of a practical function of the equipment, but remains as a signature even when not using the equipment in a practical way.
Using the sequencer to control a hairdryer.
A number of prepared devices form an experiment into how an ensemble would work.
Sequencer with fans. Of all these sketches I feel the fans have the most potential. I have built a circuit that will control multiples of 21 fans, scaling what you see here into a much larger construction. The fans are subtle in sound and have the ability to kiss you with the air. I can imagine all kinds of ways to sculpt using the air surrounding the work as a material.
