This analog electronic birdsong generator circuit is comprised of 5 transistor oscillators, several passive filters, and an audio transformer “voice” generator.
Birds and the circuits that surround us.
My Pretty Bird circuit is about to fly to China and get bigger.
I just realized that I neglected to post this video to my blog…
Here are six transparent pepakura-style songbirds, each containing a unique, analog electronic sound generator. The birds are linked by rainbow cables to a breadboarded computer (i.e, “bird brain”) that uses shift registers, astable multivibrators, and transistor switches to achieve a pseudorandom sequence… so the bird’s songs don’t sound repetitive, of course. I’m chasing after the mysteries of life —the spark of life. Eventually these little fellows will perch in a sculpture called “Birds at My Feeder,” (2019).
