La Llorona - 2012
Mixed-Media: Mailing Tubes, Duct Tape, Arduino, Potentiometers, Photo Sensors, Speakers, handkerchief, and Chiptune Circuits

La Llorona
is a double barrel synthesizer that features two speaker embedded mailing tube resonators. These resonators are perfomed using tactile controllers, as well as gestural control similar to that of a Theremin. The sounds produced by La Llorona are low to high frequency pitch bent tones that can form three note chordal drones, which can also be modulated using the mailing tube caps as wah wah mutes. La Llorona produces droning wailing sounds to brutal cycling noises.
