Laser Harp

What is a Laser Harp…?

Now with dual core Arduino’s…

The laser harp is a musical instrument made of light. A fan of beams shoots up from the floor into the night sky. The performer can create music by placing their hands in the beams. Not only does “breaking” the beam produce notes, but sliding the hand along the beam will also change the sound.

The harp does not produce any sound by itself, but creates MIDI data that can be connected to any modern synthesizer.

The laser harp concept was invented by Bernard Szajner and used extensively by Jean-Michel Jarre, and more recently Little Boots.

We need something to make  our project a little more interactive i feel. This laser harp really intrigued me and made me realise the effect of interactive sound. Getting the user more involved would bring our project to the next level. We were primarily ficussed on powerful imagery but i believe audio would really enhance the environment. Maybe the user cpuld control the imagery or audio themselves???
