Dripper

Drippers are part of audio installations. They are \'Computer Controlled Rain Machine\', where rain is a bit exagerated. They can drip water, where every drip is very well controlled. The computer controls the size of the 16 independent drops and their frequency.

Normally they are installed at some height above what will actually produce the sound. This can be tin cans, drums, crystall glasses, metal plates, ...

The Dripper was first used in Gent, Belgium where 3 modules were hung 9 meters heigh in the concert hall of the Logos Foundation (The Trahedron). The drop hit thin aluminium membranes mounted on a set of plastic tubes that were used as resonator
