Re: [BKARTS] sound maybe



It might be interesting (and cheaper!) to see how much sound the students
can create just using the pop-up mechanisms themselves to create friction
between materials. There are instructions in "Pop-ups: A Manual" (as well as
other publications, I'm sure) for a mechanism with zig-zag cut paper that
makes a surprisingly loud noise. An exploration of the way different weights
of paper (and plastic and other experimental materials) sound and behave
might make for some interesting tie ins to music and science.

Not as sexy as using more complicated technology, but would reinforce the
basics those technologies are based on and could work even work in tandam
with a sound chip.
