Counters

This aluminum suitcase houses four electrical relays and two electro-mechanical counters creating polyrhythmic musical compositions. After having composed these rhythmic algorithms on a graphic interface I downloaded my compositions onto the suitcase in order to hear a mechanical translation of my performance. The sound is produced by the numbers rotating in the electro-mechanical counters.
