The Leaf Blower

Inspiration

The inspiration for this soundtoy came from the desire to turn the day-to-day noise pollution into musical instruments

Concept

The concept of this sound toy is to use sound of a leaf blower as a musical instrument

Version 1.0

This version has four blowers all set at different pitches that can be activated by clicking on the man blowing.

Version 2.0

This version has eight blowers all set at different pitches that can be activated by rolling over the blower with the mousedown. The found fades when you roll off the graphic.

This concept is the basis for many more instruments made from day to day noise pollution.

Extending the Concept

AH the musical street cleaner, Mary Poppins chimney sweep meets Aphex Twin. I'm not sure about the ethics of remote control people but it would be funny to have a band of leaf blowers all set at different pitches playing musical scores.
