Chaos Controller
This is a homemade hardware MIDI instrument triggering a TX81Z, using Chaos Melody Theory. I built this as my final project for Physical Computing class at Tisch School of the Arts at NYU. Each student did an “art” project involving the Basic Stamp. My idea was to emulate my Chaos Melody Theory MAX patch with a stand-alone hardware device.
