This fantastic video was recently brought to my attention because of the tubular instruments’ similarity to the T-Sticks, though in appearance they are more similar to the UV Stick developed by Leonello Tarabella et al. at the Computer Music Lab of CNUCE/C.N.R. in the 1990’s (pdf 102KB)
We are developping a light-based musical instrument, the neon-guitar…. The light part is controlled via a QC patch, while the audio is currently driven by AULab.
And some background on the creators:
1024 architecture is a company created by Pierre SCHNEIDER and François WUNSCHEL, both co-founders of the EXYZT collective.
1024 architecture focuses on the interaction between body, space, sound, visual, low-tech and hi-tech, art and architecture…
We make audio-visual installations, micro-architecture, urban intervention, performances, exhibitions and others…
I’ll try to write a short post on each of the other “stick-like” digital musical instruments I have catalogued.
