Tyndall Tuner is a musical instrument that occupies the space through sound. Interacting with audiences, this sound player translates the space’s air and frequency of light into visual and audio. Essentially, it is an analog instrument that does not have speakers but vibrates metal strings with the magnetic field formed by the spinning magnetic disc. The resonant frequency of the property of it is how it plays. The range changes according to the environment such as its temperature, flow of time, kinetic energy of the player which is floating in the air. The variation created as a result of mechanical operation and magnetic field, a physical and natural phenomenon, is played throughout the space.

Adopting basic approaches that are often overlooked, Tyndall Tuner is an attempt to find an equilibrium of the physical, analog sound fluctuating depending on the ambience with the electronic and digital elements that absorb the vibration and bring tension to the space.
