Today, Alan Grover and I spent a few hours at the NODE working on the singing bowl prototype. Unfortunately, while working out the electricity we electrified the TP120‘s and probably some of the other electronic components that regulate the solenoids. Fortunately, this is not too expensive, except for the time to put the electronics back together. One very important accomplishment was that we were able to illuminate one of the wall warts by replace one with a more powerful amperage and wattage.
For the rest of the time we focused on how the wiring will be layed out and reworked with snap together hardware. Top – singing bowl, solenoids stacked on top of the Ikea kitchen can that will be tied to the decorative trash can and the old record player box that will contain all the electronics.
The final the objective is to snap the parts together, plug & play.
Sounds of art@radio returns to a new location and streaming effort employing several low power radio transmitters embedded at the Chesapeake Arts Center broadcasting trans-local voices and sounds of place. Also broadcast will be excerpts from the a@r archives. Stay tuned for more information as it develops.
This is an example of some of the sounds of Curtis Bay, south Baltimore City, Maryland. Standing just inside of the Chesapeake CompostWorks warehouse with a steamy 12 foot pile of compost on one side and an open space that expands out towards the Inner Harbor the sounds of trains moving in and out of earshot along with various industries percolating in the soundscape.
