Stringtrees (2010-14)

String Trees First Test from Michael Gurevich on Vimeo.


Stringtrees is a work in progress. It is an interactive, robotic string instrument. A rotating plectrum arm plucks up to 16 strings positioned around a central shaft. The performer can manually and dynamically control the tuning and positioning of the strings. The motion of the plectrum arm can be programmed or user-controlled. Multiple devices can be networked together.
