30 light objects in the shape of roses control sounds via an unique volt-to-midi interface. It is specially constructed for this objects and triggers a sampler. The roses contain a bulb in its flowers. Inside those bulbs, a bi-metal mechanism reacts on its own body heat and makes them turn on and off in a random interval. This informations, as well as the changes of voltage (velocity parameter) are transformed by the interface into midi signals and trigger 30 sound fragments stored in the sampler. In the concert the light objects are controlled (activate/deactivate) according to a certain dramaturgy. Since the interval of shining triggers the sounds, the constellation of the sound appearance happens randomly as well
as the modulation of the sounds, controlled by velocity.
The ROSEBOARD can also be presented as a self-playing instrument in terms of an installation
