Synchronator series launch the Mole Rat

Artist Bas van Koolwijk and Gert-Jan Prins launch a new EMF audio device

Dutch artists Gert-Jan Prins and Bas van Koolwijk have released a new electromagnetic field audio device. Called Mole Rat, it allows you to explore the electromagnetic fields in your direct surroundings. It’s the first product the two artists have created since they expanded into the field of pure sonics with their new platform Noizumashin. They started working together in 2006 on various audio/visual projects and are the makers behind the Synchronator series: audio/visual products that add colour coded signals to audio. The Mole Rat has volume and tone controls and output sound via internal speakers, an amp or headphones.

Check out a video of the Mole Rat or find more information on the Noizumashin website.


Can't quite see what this does that you can't do with a simple telephone pickup coil.
