Programmable Musical Pig
A robust steel pig with 56 arcade buttons that trigger interchangeable banks of audio samples.
Interesting how similar the final product is to the original concept drawing, created late one night in December 2010...
The project generated unusually few sketches before materials were ordered
Slightly rusty second hand 50 litre compressor
Some minimal CAD twiddling, mostly to decide colour combinations of arcade buttons
Steel sheet being rolled for the side access panels
Arcade buttons inserted, curly tail on table in background, created by rolling rod around tube on lathe
Pig on kitchen table, with ping pong ball eyes and temporary cardboard ears
Nitromors turning original compressor paint into slime
Pig during Tim Burton / Mad Max stage
Finished! With carry handle!
