ak7 shou3《握手》

Both cassette player and violin emitting sound by touching. The range of the violin’s sound is changing by adding a new bow made by cassette player and tape. It no longer follows the standard pitch of a 12-tone scale in Western music, but also to include sounds outside that scale – sounds closer to the everyday person, as well as more tactile sounds.

ak7 shou3 is a new media art work composed by a violin and a cassette player. The bridge of the violin is attached with a magnetic head, and the cassette tape would be used as the violin bow; during the perform, each decisions made by the artist will influence the delicate interaction between the violin and tape; hence to reveal the interrelationship between the Past, the Present and the Future, and review into the behaviours as the results of a series thread of event.

I made a small controller tower with Arduino and coding by Mozzi. The arduino will emit VCO and a corresponding frequency pulse PWM signal. Then, I connect it to motor of violin bow which is attaching with the cassette tape. When I rotate those switches on the tower. The voice of the tower and the speed of motor will be changed.


ak7 shou3 《握手》(2016) 是由小提琴和卡式機改裝而成的新媒體藝術作品。在小提琴的琴馬上裝了磁頭,以卡式錄音帶作小提琴的弓;在彈奏時,藝術家不同的決擇,會為小提琴和卡式磁帶之間的互動產生微妙的關係。從而探討行為的因由是來自經歷一連串不同事件後的反應,表達過去、當下和未來之間的連鎖關係。
