Light reader

The light reader is a simple physical interface for triggering sound with light. It consists of a mechanical part that allows light control with perforated discs, and an electronic part consisting of an integrated circuit that generates sound according to light intensity. The technological principles used in the Light Reader were developed and used for the biotechnological sound installation Mycophone_unison (2013) by Saša Spačal, Mirjan Švagelj and Anil Podgornik.
