Using a little Arduino hardware and programming a massive MIDI hardware sequencer has been created in the form of GRIDI, which is crude to say is currently the world’s largest in existence.
GRIDI has been created by Yuval Gerstein and goes against the trend of making sequences more portable and compact. Check out the video below to learn more about this massive MIDI hardware sequence and its creation.
GRIDI has been inspired by a large-scale Damian Hurst Spot painting at Israel Museum, after seeing it Yuval Gerstein decided to create something similar, but with the capability to create music as well. And GRIDI was born (Grid + MIDI = GRIDI).GRIDI is made out of four cutout wooden plates, carefully cut by a CNC machine. Inside the plates there is a total of 256 holes, which represent a 16X16 grid. Inside each hole there is a led light and a button.
Gridi is a large scale physical midi sequencer (2.80 X 1.65 Meters) with embedded LEDs. GRIDI translates the methodology of composing electronic music inside Ableton Live, into an interactive physical installation. It could easily act as a permanent stand alone installation, as well as part of an art exhibition or event. GRIDI could also have a role in music education, as a tool for learning musical concepts in a non threatening, intriguing way.
