One of her latest Tik Toks of her creating a painted synthesizer is making its rounds on social media. She spoke about the creation on her creative tech experiment Instagram account.
Muhtanya said: “Painted this canvas literally in December 2020 and finally got around to wiring it up a year later!! The black paint is conductive and I built out the circuit on the back of the canvas with copper tape (with the help of kitty). Wired it up with a microcontroller that wirelessly talks to my laptop and triggers a customizable audio library.”
She continued: I was only able to map out 5 different keys/notes last night but I designed the painting to be able to trigger up to 12 different notes so more on this to come soon!!! if I don’t end up getting distracted by another project yet again.”
