Mechanoise: Mechatronic Sound and Interaction in Embedded Acoustic Instruments
by Eric Sheffield

The use of mechatronic components (e.g. DC motors and solenoids) as both electronic sound source and locus of interaction is explored in a form of embedded acoustic instruments called mechanoise instruments. Micro-controllers and embedded computing devices provide a platform for live control of motor speeds and additional sound processing by a human performer. Digital fabrication and use of salvaged and found materials are emphasized.
