ivy is a 240-stage step sequencer created by Moscow-based media artist Dmitry Morozov, aka ::vtol::, for an interactive sound installation.
Here’s what Morozov had to tell us about the project:
The project is created specially for Open Codes exhibition in ZKM center, dedicated to codes and programming in art.
On one side, Ivy is a representation of an archaic method of electronic music programming for analog synthesizers. On the other side – gigantic scale and obsessive multiplication of simple primitive elements turns this project into an art installation, that is referring to the topic of graphic and physical organization of parameters in electronic music.
- Arduino Mega with 74hc4067 multiplexors
- Teensy for led control
- ws2811 leds
- 10k sliders x240

I was able to emulate a 240 note sequencer with Ableton Live version 9
It was hard work, but my friends are Amazed.
So you where creating an entire song?
here is an idea , first make a regular song, then do tweaking
Lol .. sounds like some seriously broken machines …..
Reminds me of the virtual gun racks scene in Matrix the movie. Some serious weapon there!
can i buy one for £399 ,i want in
this is really great.
There’s joke about Russian Tech in this story,,,somewhere…”it is the biggest step sequencer in the world , unfortunately the power supply is the size of a truck”….maybe? or just I love it but will it fit in the overhead?
Any truth to the rumor it’s called the “Tsar Bomba”?
love this , looks ace. sounds like a great idea for project
would like a fiddle with them sliders
good going dude
For what I hear in that video, I just need one line of code – with “RND” in it…..
I think the Cylons are malfunctioning.
🙂 Hilarious fun.
His web site is definitely worth checking out, it’s filled with countless videos of the same sort of confoundingly weird stuff.
Quality art and quality music very rarely go together.
What a waste of that sequencer. He needs some composition lessons.
Those look like mini sliders, i could never use that sequencer.
You need a road-trip to get from one end to the other! Brilliant fun though!

You know what they say about guys who need really big sequencers………..
Long arms ?
4 minutes of that?! Sheesh
19 inch rack format would be nice
