“The project revolves around trying to make sound using analogue optoelectronics.

We have a plan to build a keyboard that allows light to filter through etched microscope slides that traverse the light beam as they are pressed, with a sensor that will pick up the variances in the light that passes that will create a unique tone to the sound.

We also hope to make spinning transparent disks that light will pass through to further add tone to the sounds.

Use of prisms to slit lights could possibly add further harmonics to arrays of sensors.

Ultimately we would like to have a synthesiser that will give the operator the ability to change all the sounds by replacing and/or customising various physical light filters.

For a rich authentic sound we are not using any digital components.

Would be great to get a bigger team, perhaps to focus on different parts(sensors, filters, housing, design, marketing)

Kickstarter would be great if we can get a simple plan for a viable product together.

Very early stages so ideas very welcome.”


How to find us? 

The closest tube stations are Cambridge Heath Road station (5 minutes walk), Bethnal Green (Central Line – 10 minutes away) and Hoxton station (Overground – around 15 minutes).

We look forward to seeing you at our space!
