Posted at Create Digital Music by Peter Kirn, an article about “The Prankophone”…
A strange combo including a phone, a synthesizer and a logic module.
Prankophone is a synthesizer plus telephone plus logic module. It sits alone in a gallery, and dials up recipients at random (or, if you prefer, pre-selected victims), then plays them generative sounds, composing an algorithmic tune from their phone number, and relaying sound from whomever picks up. You can also “communicate” with the caller from a music keyboard, if you’d like to talk to them in song. (Close Encounters, anyone?)
