Arthur Lucchesi – RWM MK1
The RWM MK1 is an experimental electronic synthesiser that captures and transforms radio signals, creating intriguing sounds and soundscapes. This instrument interacts with terrestrial and cosmic electromagnetic radiation, enabling us to listen to distant echoes from the far reaches of the universe.
It consists of two PCB plates with a tangible interface for real-time interaction with these waves. Musicians can also add sound effects, enhancing the experience.
My project is inspired by Jocelyn Bell’s discovery of pulsars, NASA’s SETI program, the Wow Signal and the works of musicians such as Tim Hecker and Gustav Holst.
