Experimental Musical Instruments



I have to admit that among all the kinetic works, my greatest fondness may be for things that make noise, sounds, and music, and a really great source for such noisy, as well as musical works is Bart Hopkin's site Experimental Musical Instruments. Pictured above is "Savart's Wheel", designed by Bart himself. This piece is, "widely acclaimed for the fact that it makes the most obtrusive, obnoxious and irritating sound imaginable." Now that is kinetic art that I can really get behind.

Be sure to check out their amazing listing of books, as well as back issues of the incomparable "EMI Journal" published between 1985 and 1999. Also not to be missed is their selection of hardware and electronics for your own experimental designs - all of this can be found in their Catalog area.
