S’n‘S (Sound and sensors) is a system of musical instruments designed and prototyped with a twofold purpose: to experience sound bodily without knowing music, and to implement “eco-technological” tools entirely recyclable and remixable in their physical and digital componentsIt is a five instrument system entirely made of cardboard, embedding different sensors and actuators. The software developed to control the system is open source and realised by assembling and adapting open source code. The project addresses people who are not expert musicians, who may want to approach music in a bodily and engaging way, using gestures and imagination as driver of their performance. S’n’S is composed of tools inspired by electric guitar and bass, theremin, dj console and didgeridoo.
