Description

Welcome to the KW LGBTQ+ in Technology Meetup organized by makingspace.tech

We're hosting our monthly meet-up as per usual, but this time we're making it even more special by bringing in special guests: Polly Beats and nik harron! nik and Polly Beats will be joining us to showcase MONARCH, nik's interactive musical art installation that is as fun as it is engaging. Polly Beats will bring it to life with their musical expertise.

Monarch Interactive Art


MONARCH is an idiophonic butterfly-shaped physical synth. Comprised of 38 magnetically-tunable oscillators, 4 kalimba elements, 6 strings, 2 removable steel picks, and a playable reverb spring. Contact mic’d internally with a piezo transducer, it combines the ability to play as a picked/plucked instrument as well as percussively.

Designed alongside a custom 3-scene real-time visualizer, the instrument and real-time digital interpretative computer graphics together comprise an interactive gallery exhibit.

nik will spend some time talking about his work with sounds and visualizations as a new canvas for his art; Polly Beats will operate it and play a musical piece for us.
