AC Symphony is a instrument, design and performed by Danne Woo, that allows the musician to play AC powered appliances. The control center is an AC sequencer that plays all the appliances in sequence. You can change the speed, pause, reset, harmonize and control the amount of voltage going to each appliance. Essentially its a power strip on steroids.

Of course they are controlled by motors and react on camera input. The result is an interactive pattern / grid display. See more of his work after the jump. Read More >
