Music Monsters

Imagine you can create music by using paint. One simple touch of a painting triggers a sound. Music Monsters is a quick exploration of Electric Paint, a non-toxic electrically conductive material that can be screen printed, sprayed or brushed to create circuitry on almost any surface including paper, plastic, wood, and textiles.

A part of the illustration was drawn by using Electric Paint to create a simple circuit. Then the team took apart a toy piano, eliminated unnecessary parts, wired electronics and connected all elements with the drawing. When you touch the drawing on particular areas, it triggered piano sounds.

The experiment with Electric Paint opens up unlimited opportunities to combine visual and sound art.
