Bespoke Electromechanical Instrument built as part of a dissertation undertaken on the Creative Music Technology degree course at Staffordshire University. The instrument uses the Maxuino software protocol to interface Max/MSP with an Arduino. Without Maxuino and specifically the help of one of its lead developers, this project would not have been possible. The instrument is designed in such a way so as to allow each note to be independently placed in a space. In this video the instrument is arranged in a 24 foot surround configuration. The audience is invited to experience the instrument from within the surround configuration, this offers a unique spatial dimension to the Lithophone intended to completely envelop the listener.
