Twinkler and Gripper – Light and Motion-controlled MIDI Instruments

‘Twinkler’ is a Arduino-driven light-controlled MIDI instrument. Eight photoresistors are combined with a RGB sensor, various knobs and buttons and echolocation (sonar). Different light colours can change the scale or octave, whilst light density effects pitch, velocity and a host of other modulation parameters and effects

‘Gripper’ is a sensor-based glove combining an Adafruit Circuit Playground microcontroller offering gyroscope and accellerometer, with flex sensors in the fingers. The glove is designed to control effects and modulation, much like an expression pedal, or mod wheel.
