Twelve piezo pickup sensors trigger the lo-fi 8-bit tones
The musical umbrella was constructed during the Amsterdam-based Music Hack Day
The musical umbrella was created by Berlin-based Alice Zappe and Julia Lager
During this year’s Amsterdam-based Music Hack Day, two intrepid hackers originating from Berlin created a musical umbrella which produces a random series of lo-fi 8-bit tones. The tones are triggered by raindrops striking the outside surface of the umbrella's canopy and the abstract results bring to mind a warped soundtrack for the first generation Nintendo Game Boy.
