‘Sonic Manipulator” Claude Woodward shared this video demo of his latest musical creation, the Claudeatron mk IV MIDI Controller.
The Claudeatron is an expressive MIDI controller made out of clear Perspex Acrylic. The unusual design allows for continuous control over pitch, volume, timbre and other aspects of synthesis.
In addition to the Perspex creations that Woodward documents in this video, he’s made a wide variety of musical inventions, including the Orbatron, Tron-o-pear and Alpha-Beta-Numerophone, which he says are part of ‘The Sonic Manipulator Experience’. See his site for more examples of his creations.
