audio visual instrument by artist and musician Ken Butler. The keyboard
activates the lamps of six slide projectors (aimed at the same area
of the screen) creating live animation along with perfectly synchronized
sound from an amplified string (located under the keys), the extended
end which is struck with a stick, bowed, or strummed by a motorized
disc, rimmed with guitar picks.
A single key advances all six projectors
to a new group of slides. Additional strings and resonant surfaces
provide other sounds.
