Dear electro-musicians,

I have been working on a series of SoundBoxes for sale and as gifts for the Winter Solstice 2012. These SoundBoxes contain a 1/2 Watt audio amplifier, a small speaker and a resonant contact microphone, all housed in beautiful antique cigar boxes or jewelry/silverware cases. Each box is unique and hand made, and bears the traces of its history as an everyday object before it was transformed into a primitive, intuitive feedback-sound-instrument.

I have just posted some information about purchasing one of these on my site. Please contact me at MACUMBISTA at_the_domain GMAIL.COM during the coming week of 3-9 December if you are interested in purchasing one of these before 2013! I will be away from my studio from 12 Dec to 13 Jan.

Thank you for your kind attention.
Derek

Several folks asked about other box options. Here they are at present:

77mm BOXES

These boxes are available for made-to-order SoundBoxes. They are drilled to use a transparent 77mm speaker. The inside of these boxes is lit by an LED, and images or graphics can be placed inside, as seen below:

92mm BOXES

These boxes are available for made-to-order SoundBoxes. They are drilled to use a black 92mm speaker. I have several of the box in the rear-middle, marked "Pallas".

Thanks for looking!

I am finally able to offer the last three in the line of thirty Solstice SoundBoxes, which I started in December 2012. The Solstice SoundBoxes were intended as small, portable and battery-powered electro-acoustic instruments. They can create a variety of drone and reverb-type sounds through feedback between a small speaker and a resonant piezo-electric microphone, as seen in this video. Or they can bring out the hidden sounds within found objects as seen in this video. A variety of other features were available, including transparent and backlit speakers, decorations within the box, line-outs and “circuit-bending” body contacts. They could also simply be used as cigar-box amplifiers for whatever other electronic instruments you might have.

I will also begin a new line of Spring SoundBoxes for 2013 very soon!

Number 9 and number 29 sold. Number 28 reserved (with waitlist!). Thanks everyone! I will post again when I have new ones next month. Planning another run of 30 hopefully, so everyone can get their shot.
