TAMBURO MECCANICO XXI - [Electro-mechanical rhythm machine]

Published on Feb 20, 2019 Opificio Sonico

"Hello everyone, In this video is shown my latest artwork made out of #LEGO TECHNIC inspired by #Leonardo da Vinci's TAMBURO MECCANICO (mechanical drum).

It consists of a four tracks rhythm machine which mechanically generates the electric impulses needed to trigger the drum synth and the bass-line sync.
This is my personal tribute to Leonardo's genius who in the late 1400 introduced the first automated musical instrument and the concept of step #sequencer.

The nonlinearity of the system made in ABS, generates a sort of shuffle rhythm and some random ghost notes, which creates an unpredictable organic groove.
[This footage is taken from the first studio jam]
Enjoy! Giuseppe"
