::vtol:: phason

::vtol:: phason from ::vtol:: on Vimeo.

"Phason – an audio object using rotating, perforated discs to create cyclical triggers (sequencer). The light passing from the console panel through fibre-optic light guides serves as the controlling agent. Light passing through the perforation hits the photo sensors, triggering the synthesizer. The object may be used as an instrument or an autonomous sound machine. To interact with it, can be use the built-in flashlight on flexible holder or any other small light sources (for example, flashlight on a phone).

The idea of the object is predicated to a large extent on Soviet experiments with optical sound, and also the automatic music boxes and caskets at the turn of the 19th-20th centuries, when disks were frequently used to encode sound and rhythms."
