Fri, 11/13/2015 - 10:36 -- rprice

Free Music Archive: Build A Mixing Bowl Reverb

Mon, 02/09/2015 - 17:32 -- rprice

The concept of a plate reverb is quite simple. An electromagnet, like the one found on a audio speaker, is directly or indirectly coupled to the center of a piece of sheet of metal. Audio from a sound source is fed into this electromagnet (voice coil) which will physically vibrate the piece of sheet metal (plate). These audio vibrations are echoed many times, echos which are in fact persistence of audio. The amount of persistence (reverberation) is determined by the physical characteristics of the plate.

ionosonde recordings: D.I.Y. plate reverb

Mon, 02/09/2015 - 17:32 -- rprice

Now that I had a working voice coil (driver) ready for mounting on the plate reverb unit, it is time to fabricate a coupling link that will directly connect the driver to the plate. But first, I need to do something with this mess I made while performing that gruesome surgery on our patient. A quick sweeping with my trusty broom and......wait a minute - broom - broom handle... Perfect! A broom handle is the right size for making a driver coupling link.

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 14:21 -- rprice

From the same arts and technology troupe that produced the Osheaga visuals and live effects, to the Super Bowl halftime show, comes the "Foresta Lumina": a 20-30 minute luminous pathway experience inside an actual forest north of Montreal. The forest mixes interactive characters and high tech installations with giant projectors, laser printed lights, and futuristic costume design. The forest is their canvas and their interactive space is made to pop with their next level tech.
