Introduction: MIDI - Interacting Object

Interacting object(by Stian Korntved Ruud)
The project deals with tactile interaction between human and computers in creative processes. Majority of the current digital instruments are manufactured in such way that they lose the great tactile feeling that is inherently in a well built acoustic instrument. To explore this relationship, I made a series of objects that acts as an intermediary in the tactile relationship between you and your computer.

IO 00
Is a "brain" that translates the values coming in from the linked instruments and translates it so the computer can understand what is happening.

IO 01
A digital flute that can be programmed to whatever the user desires.

    Nice clean build! As Kiteman, I too would love some more details especially your considerations in building this flute. Why did you choose the UMC-32 and the Yamaha sensor? I build something alike (https://www.instructables.com/id/Simple-Midi-FluteR... and choose a cheap Arduino Nano and a microphone Sensor. These are of course cheaper, but I hadn't have a chance to compare them to an UMC-32 and Yamaha sensor. Hope you did and maybe can give some additional info! Did you consider pressure (eg piezo) or touch sensors?

    And again, very, very nice build!

    It would be nice to see more details of how you made and programmed the flute, as well as a better idea of what it sounds like.
