An electric vehicle producing sounds in reaction to its environment

1979 (open)


In the project “mobilodrom” I have tried to combine music and environment with musical means. On a mobile object (electric car) a microprocessor is installed, which controls a synthesizer by means of an interface hybrid. On the vehicle there are also environmental sensors installed (e.g. air pressure gauge), which can influence the software (program sequences) of the computer through a converter. This technical arrangement has the consequence that environmental influences compose a complete piece of music on the basis of a music program (basic composition) conceived by me. Furthermore, whale sounds and bell sounds are used in “mobilodrom”, which refer musically to the environmental problems.
