Siren-Bike

The Siren-Bike is a playable physics-experiment based on Hermann von Helmholtz’ ideas from 1875.
Together with Prof. Caspar Johannes Walter I developed an instrument that can be played like riding a bike. The piece was exhibited at Akademie der Künste in the context of Labor Beethoven 2020.

Chladni Experiment

Around 1800, Ernst Florens Friedrich Chladni traveled through Europe and fascinated people with his plates that make sound visible. We turned the experiment into an instrument.
If a system is excited with a natural frequency, standing waves are formed. These waves oscillate in time but are constant in space. Standing waves have so-called nodal points at which the plate does not move. These nodal points are dependent on the respective resonance.
