Octoharp on TIEM!


Taxonomy of Realtime Interfaces for Electronic Music Performance is database of musical interfaces and instruments. The curators are interested in exploring the practice and application of new interfaces for real-time electronic music performance. So I submitted information about my ongoing "Tensegrity Harp" cum "OctoHarp" project.

TIEM is a great resource that any interested live electronic music performer should check out.

This attention to this project will hopefully spur me to dust off the moth balls and get the instrument prototype #5 into production.

Toyojis_Song.mp3 - Scot Gresham-Lancaster

Using sensor Data from a Crossbow network on Camilie Vineyard, I constructed this piece for the tree planting memorial for Toyoji Tomita at Mills college on Sept. 10, 2008. Thanks so much to Mark Holler for giving me access to this amazing sensor network he has constructed at his place on Mt. Veeder.

It was a wonderful evening with performances by many who love and will miss our good friend.
