A baguette sits diagonally across a wooden cutting board. Above it sits an Arduino and an electronics breadboard.

Theremins are a bit of an odd instrument to commence with, but [AphexHenry] made a decision to set a single where no theremin has absent right before: into a baguette.

The “baguetophone” is a theremin and piezo-percussion instrument within a hollowed-out baguette. Setting up with a Diy theremin tutorial from Academy of Media Arts Cologne, [AphexHenry] additional some spice with a piezo pickup inside the baguette to perform as a percussion instrument. One particular mentioned downside of squeezing the instrument into such an abnormal enclosure is that the antenna does not answer as very well as it could with a a lot more common arrangement. Outputs from the piezo and antenna are run by means of Max/MSP on a computer to transform the bread into a MIDI controller. Like numerous Do-it-yourself theremins, it appears that this construct neglects the volume antenna, but there is no purpose you couldn’t insert a person. Perhaps disguised as a piece of cheese?

Outside smuggling an instrument into a French café for a flash mob general performance, this could also show useful if you’re somebody who receives hungry even though taking part in tunes. We do not propose snacking on the Arduino even if it is ROHS compliant nevertheless.

If you want to learn far more about how theremins perform, check out out Theremin in Detail. Just after that, you could possibly want to search all of our theremin articles or blog posts or glimpse at this task where they employed a 555 as an alternative.
