'Water MIDI' - Turning Water Drops Into MIDI Notes
In this video from R-MONO Lab, we catch a fascinating demonstration of water droplets apparently being used to trigger MIDI messages. Functioning similarly to a question and response, the player plays the first note, and the water droplet triggers the following note.
From the video’s description (translated from Japanese),
When you play the keyboard, MIDI controlled solenoid drops water drop! Sound and video are generated in real time in synchronism with the water drop. It is an art work that fuses virtual and real.
This is one demonstration of the fact that MIDI can be used in a virtually-infinite amount of ways. We’re excited to see more interesting projects from the folks that created this water-drop to MIDI mechanism.
