An electrically amplified typewriter, for composing and performing sonic poetry/prose/etc


Introduction to Physical Computing

Using a Remington portable typewriter, I plan to tap into the mechanical heart of the typewriter and extract and amplify the magnetic resonance generated by it's usage. By positioning various triggers, strings and springs I hope to enhance it's range of expression. All the different effects and pickups will be triggered by typing, so in effect, notation for the piece performed or composed is mixed within and becomes part of the text, or code printed on paper.
