An Instrument for the Sonification of Everday Things




German designer Dennis P Paul has created an electronic instrument that makes sound based on the contours of everyday objects (video). An object is placed on a rotating mount on the instrument. The instrument then rotates the object rotisserie-style as a precision rangefinding laser reads the contours of the object. The contour data is translated into surprisingly musical electronic sound. Paul calls the device, rather descriptively, “An Instrument for the Sonification of Everday Things.”
