A Musical Sculpture at Maker Faire Bay Area 2014   Leave a comment

Here is a wonderful musical sculpture crafted by Christopher T. Palmer on display at the Maker Faire. The piece is called “Nicht mit dem Titel, ein” Google translate says this means “Not with the title, a” or something like that.

It uses restored cuckoo clock whistles, a microcontroller, some model servos. It plays every 15 minutes.
