Heartwood project

Constructing the sensor array. The idea is to capture the environment, as sensed by the tree, and to use this to control the sounds during performance. I’ve obtained a range of sensors, which measure temperature, light, pressure, moisture, and movement (through measurement of infra red). These have been connected to an Arduino board, to provide an interface with the computer. Arduino is a wonderful open source platform for building such interfaces, among many other things! Here, the Arduino will be used to generate MIDI control signals, using a Max for Live patch.
