This is a short documentary in pictures of the building of the Trojan Chorus piece. It was built for the Sound + Vision exhibit, which celebrates the release of the Treble Treble 3 compilation from Eternal Otter Records. This release includes selected artists from all around Maine. The piece was built by myself, Johnathan Cooke and Don Dumont. It was displayed in the North Dam Mill in Biddeford, Maine on November 18 and 19th.

Here's a little more information about how we implemented this project. We used a Highly Liquid MIDICPU for this project. Piezo discs were used to sense strikes to the body. Highly Liquid suggests a Darlington transistor to improve the sensitivity of the circuit.
