The Leaf Audio Microphonic Soundbox MkII is a compact electro-acoustic instrument designed to explore different “concrete” sounds and acoustic textures in real-time.
The Leaf Audio Microphonic Soundbox MkII combines metal roads, springs, a sandpaper surface and kalimba which are captured by two contact microphones. It also includes a Hi-Z audio input to connect instruments such as a guitar or bass.
Creating a sound happens by the simple physical interaction between the player or a third object to generate organic textures. Tap, wipe, caress the elements to create unique textures that respond to the textures of the objects used.
The two contact mics are amplified up to a hundred times by a built-in preamp to capture all the most subtle sonic interaction with the instrument. When connecting an instrument to Hi-Z input, one of the contact microphone is disconnected.
The Microphonic Soundbox is battery-operated and can therefore be used anywhere at any time.
