These playable surfaces are inspired by the wooden instrument such as a guitar. With the application of ready-made technology and electronics,the series compresses different methods of sound interaction on a compact form of wooden board.

A previous work – Vibe, is a table like instrument. It was built as a surface for playing sound through a combination of acoustic and digital, playable as guitar and drum. It started as my interest in learning about guitar construction and timbre. There is an important subject in guitar building for searching tone wood alternatives due to scarcity and environmental concern. During an experiment with the materials, I realised the Fibreboard has a good acoustic quality. By attaching strings and tuner, it becomes an alternative form of Guitar.

Soundboards further explored the idea by altering form and methods. Much influenced by the Found N Sound series, each board features unique way of interaction and sound. The builds include method such as light sensor and conductive technology. Like a compressed version of the older works, it focuses more on the alternative form and simplicity.

With the combination of audio system, it is possible to turn into a large performative tool.

這些可玩的表面靈感來自木製樂器,如吉他。隨著現成的科技和電子產品的應用,該系列壓縮不同的互在木板上。受Found N Sound系列影響,每個板都有獨特的遊玩方式。

之前的作品—Vibe,是一個樂器檯面。它通過物理和數碼的互動組合播放聲音,可以同時作為吉他和鼓。它開始於我的興趣,學習吉他結構和木材音色。在做吉他中有一個重要的主題-木材,由於缺乏天然音木和環境關注而搜索木材替代物。在使用材料的實驗中,我意識到纖維板具有良好的聲學質量。通過連接結他線,琴橋等,它成為另一形式的樂器。

Soundboards通過改變形式和方法進一步探索聲音互動想法。受Found N Sound系列影響,每個板都有獨特的遊玩方式。其中包括光傳感器和導電的方法。像舊作品的壓縮版本,它更側重於替代形式和簡單化。

隨著系統的結合,有可能變成一個大型表演工具。
