IevansPolkka is a demo of some of the bizarre electro-mechanical “exertion instruments” of Noah Vawter.
Noah Vawter created these instruments as part of his work at the Computing Culture Group at MIT Media Lab.
Vawter’s instruments are designed to combine some of the immediacy, portability and quirkiness of traditional instruments with the flexible timbres of electronic ones.
You can find out more about Vawter’s Physically Engaged or Electronic Exertion Instruments at his MIT page.
While these instruments are bizarre – they look like they’d be a lot of fun to play!
