Cryptoguitar development 2019 - 2020

Cryptoguitar is an ongoing project of live and recorded guitar music where the rhythmic plucking of guitar strings execute binary patterns that produce both music and ASCII codes.

The work is the result of research into musical cryptograms, codes and secret messages encoded into instrumental music and an exploration of real time rhythmic computer interaction.

It uses a two bits of custom technology which will be shared and released when I am happy with the designs. Firstly an optical sensor that picks up when the finger plucks each string.

There is also a circuit that translates the rhythms of the plucking into text.
