The Betty Rymer Gallery of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago



This is a musical instrument/light sculpture which is organized according to geometric principles designed for the Trichord. Displayed and performed at the group show In::formation in 2000 at the Betty Rymer Gallery of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. It operated as both a MIDI controlled musical instrument and as a MIDI playback device. A built-in micro-controller stored algorithmically generated musical sequences that were based upon an exploration of the geometric space described in the Trichord patent.
