The All Seeing Eyes Light Theremin by Darcy Neal

Looks like we’re going to get to play with a light theremin in our attempts to shape multiple senses simultaneously:


“There are 6 photocell receptors, which have been tuned to 2 different notes, so 3 are tuned to one note and 3 are tuned to another note. The photocells have been tuned to be 2 1/2 steps apart, and was originally tuned to a C and E flat, so the foundation for the sounds heard are slightly in tune and harmonize with each other. The amount of light hitting it determines the pitch/note that you hear, and it can range from being very high pitched to very low pitched. The two potentiometers control the tone and volume.”
