listening into the light like never before.
optosonics is a forgotten technology that was widely in use to store, transmit or manipulate information in the beginning of the 20th century. we will give a brief overview of the history and current developments of optosonics in art and technology, using our “sonic luz” synthesizer as a starting point.you will have hands-on experience with an optical sound receiver and an optical sound sender built out of very few electronic parts and experiment with this surprisingly simple technology.also we will provide schematics and part-lists for building your own optical sound receiver- and sender.
