The AC sequencer console allows the musician to control any AC powered appliance that is plugged into it. The first iteration, Light Hum, controlled the brightness and sequence of 8 light bulbs. Each bulb has a photocell theremin attached to it to convert the light frequency into audio frequency. I used different photocells/phototransistors, resistors and capacitors to generate different tones. The heart of the AC sequencer is a board designed by Mark Kleback and Ezer Lichtenstein. This project is completely analog, no computers were used for the audio or the visuals.
