The Human Harp is a project led by artist Di Mainstone
with hardware and software engineering by Becky Stewart
and Adam Stark. The project draws inspiration from sus-
pension bridges and explores how they can be transformed
into musical instruments through augmentation with phys-
ical computing interfaces.

The proposed workshop will lead participants through the
hardware and software central to the installation - in par-
ticular the hardware string interface and the sound gener-
ation software. Participants will get hands-on experience
programming and testing the Arduino-based hardware and
then a guided tour through the software generating the au-


Di Mainstone

Artist, Human Harp
Artist in residence at Queen Mary University London, Di collaborates with researchers from the Centre for Digital Music and Media Arts and Technology group, to develop new musical instruments that are inspired by the body, transforming physical movement into sound via digital technology. Di has invented the term “Movician” to describe the player of these instruments - a hybrid artist who explores and composes sound through movement.
