Plink Jet

Lesley Flanigan, and Andrew Doro

Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

Abstract:

Plink Jet is a robotic musical instrument made from scavenged inkjet printers and guitar parts. We investigate the expressive capabilities of everyday machine technology by recontextualizing the relatively high-tech mechanisms of typical office debris into an electro-acoustic musical instrument. We also explore the performative relationship between human and machine.
