Programmed Intonarumori

Machine producing sounds by reading printed lines

I’m interested in exploring the world of sounds, digitally or physically produced. At the same time, being father of a child, I observed how children like produce and manipulate unorganized sounds, by beating with something on a surface or pressing a PC keyboard randomly. I want to make a machine producing different kind of sounds by reading printed lines of different width and colours. Something like a modern futuristic “intonarumori” programmed with Arduino. My goal is to learn to control sounds and to make something a child can play with
