This is a string instrument at Freiraum MQ Vienna (2009)
The pitch of a base string is altered by a lever which employs a motor in order to apply tension and is also modulated by an infrared distance sensor.
The string is hit by a drill and by the performer.

The dream of a low frequency, scraping, clicking and undulating pile of metal has been fulfilled!
