This is a followup in the Generative Propagation concept. What I intended to answer with these exercises are two questions:
- How can the trigger threshold be physically controlled? (How can the mic’s sensitivity be manipulated?)
- How can the tempo be established? (How often should each module emit a sound?)
The trigger threshold can be manipulated through manually controlling the microphone’s gain or amount voltage transferred to the amplifier –Potentiometer to IC–.
By manipulating this potentiometer, the sensitivity of the microphone can be controlled.
The tempo can be established through timing the trigger’s availability. By setting a timer that allows the a variable to listen again, the speed/rate at which the entire installation reproduces sounds can be established.
