Lineal-Musik-Maschine Vtol – RBS20

Vtol Ruler Maschine RBS20Vtol Ruler Maschine RBS20

Vtol ist bekannt für kreative und mechanische Musikmaschinen, die eher abwegige Ansätze zulässt und sich auch nicht scheut, Aufwand zu betreiben.

Lineale Klangerzeugung

Jeder kennt das – mit dem Lineal kann man Sounds machen. Man muss es nur auf den Tisch legen und ein bisschen hervor stehen lassen und kann es dann anschlagen. Es flattert hin und her und erzeugt ein lustiges „Sploingkk“-Geräusch. Das kann man durch die Länge des beweglichen Teils des Lineals, was über den Tisch herausragt steuern. Die Schwingfrequenz wird entsprechend tiefer und langsamer und kann damit tonal gespielt werden.

Vtol: Eine Frage des richtigen Sploinks

Das kann man doch aber auch gezielt machen, dachte sich Vtol und hat eine kleine Sensortastatur gebaut, die von einem kleinen Rechner abgegriffen wird. Der gibt die Längen des Lineals in Form von Bewegung an einen Elektromotor weiter und positioniert das Lineal entsprechend.

A Machine to Ruler them All

Technisch steckt hinter dem OLED-Display ein Arduino, also ein kleiner Minirechner, der eigentlich 2 Motoren steuert. Einer zum „anschlagen“ und ein weiterer um das Lineal zu verschieben. Das alles in der gewohnten metallischen und sehr sehenswerten Arbeit. Alle Vtol-Werke sind sehr ansehnlich und so gebaut als wären sie faktisch serienreif zu kaufen. Sie sind aber Einzelstücke. Wir ziehen unseren nichtvorhandenen Hut! Der Klang wird übrigens per Piezo Abnehmern aufgenommen und kann damit auch in ein elektronisches Set integriert und leicht aufgenommen werden. Mehr Bilder und die genaue Erklärung findest du hier. Dort sind auch aktuell 120 vergleichbare und aufwendig gebaute Instrumente zu finden. Manche sind auch noch aufwendiger.

Weitere Information

Wir haben schon über einige Vtol-Entwicklungen berichtet, jedoch kann man die Reihe am besten beobachten, indem man hin und wieder bei Vtols Vimeo-Kanal vorbei schaut. Außerdem gibt es eine Website, wo man unter „Works“ viele tolle Maschinen finden kann, die jeweils Erklärungen bereit stellen und man kann sie in Aktion hören. Vtol macht auch Circuit Bending und Sounds.
