Caged Pulse Jets is an interactive, kinetic sound sculpture. The caged birds are five spinning pulse jet engines of various sizes that create a range of percussive and droning tones. Through a completely interactive interface, the public can create sound compositions ranging from the symphonic to the cacophonous while they are held captive by the fiery jets spinning by their own thrust.

Sketches and Pictures

Here are some pictures-

The first one is of my first Pulse Jet- I built a Lockwood-Hiller style jet for a show called Propulsion in Taos, NM in 2008. It ran when it felt like it, but it sounded great! I was inspired by the huge pulse jets at a SRL show at Robodock, which I had the great pleasure of operating during the show.
