The Stick

Project Description: I was a team member in the development of a complex MIDI musical instrument in the form of a simple broomstick. I developed the sensors and software of the first prototype. Artist Laurie Anderson in her Moby Dick performance later used the device, in its fourth iteration.

Bob Adams was the lead of a great team including Geoff Smith, Michael Brook and John Eichenseer Interval Research’s Expression Group

Technical Notes: I built a MAX patch and a connection to the National Instruments MacAdios board that was connected to various pressure sensors on the stick.
