THE WIRED LAB is an artist led organisation evolving interdisciplinary art practices in rural Australia. We create opportunities for the research, production and presentation of projects that connect international and local artists with communities in new ways. Our curated programs and projects involve artists working from a regional context whilst producing outcomes of local and global relevance. Our activities range from skills development for young people, seniors, emerging and mid career artists, to the creation, presentation, publication and promotion of new works and major live arts projects.

Guitar Pickups

Some images of the guitar pickups and their placement during an experimental recording session in August 2008. Note that in many of these experiments the pickups were positioned along the wire, which is a different orientation to a guitar string. Also note that it is possible to use the pickups from the back, and also with additional magnets. Finally the vibrations induced on the straining wires were also recorded at a number of different orientations. Manipulation of the position of the pickups produced some interesting eq/filtering effects.
