The Lemon Synthesizer

Sunday Synth Jam: The Lemon Synthesizer is a performance/installation/musical work, created by Akemi Takeya, that uses a ‘citrus-based interface’.

From the official project notes:

Naturally occurring voltages in lemons are used as signal controllers for an audio synthesizer to manipulate audio processing.

The contents of a lemon are never stagnant and are constantly changing and self-renewing. With this bio-machine, Takeya sets a unique approach to art, science and invention.

Takeya lives and works in Vienna.

  1. As my old granny used to say, "If life gives you lemons, make wierd noises."

    Come back Yoko, all is forgiven.

  2. The Yoko comment is funny. Actually William Shatner vocals here might work well. I could be wrong…… lemons confuse me.
