Optical bass guitar

It's actually quite marvelously good. They take a laser, and point it at a photocell. The photocell gets hooked straight into the line-in of an amplifier. Then they place a taut black rubber cord just next to the light beam. By fingering the string, you get the string vibrating at various frequencies, and thus it breaks the lightbeam in corresponding intervals, resulting in a Really Phat bass guitar sound coming out of the speakers.

Using your fingers, you can play percussion on the light beam.

And using a fine-toothed comb, you can sc-sc-sc-sc-sc-scratch.

You're still invited to submit ideas for the photo meme, although I don't promise to get to them right away.

For [livejournal.com profile] filkerdave. Peace. Also "Shit happens", "Work sucks" and "333 - halfway to hell".

Bloom in autumn
Originally uploaded by michiexile
For Susanne, who didn't sign her contribution to the photo meme, summer in autumn. By the time I got the meme started, autumn was far enough gone that an indian summer type picture couldn't work any more. However, the botanic gardens in Jena still had blooming flowers, which made for a good contrast.

I lifted this off of [livejournal.com profile] filkerdave who's having WAY too much fun with it.

Ask me to photograph something (around where I live/work, or somewhere I can get to easily) ... it could be just about anything, but I reserve the right to "interpret" your request if it makes for a better photo or is vaguely amusing to me :-) ... no guarantee for how quickly I'll get around to your request, but I'll see what I can do (and I also reserve the right to use a photograph I've already taken if it fits your theme/request)
