Fort Thunder

Lucas Abela (AU), Keg de Souza (AU)

Fort Thunder is a touch play synthesizer built into a play fort that generates a startling array of electronic noise as bodies inside connect the 22 stainless steel poles, and themselves, in different combinations. Essentially it works by replacing the knobs you would find on typical synthesizers with bodies, which act as resistors between two points of oscillating circuit resulting in a fun, playful way to produce electronic sound. This project is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
