“teaparty” imitates earthly cycle of events. It is a MIDI controller that maps a kettle behavior and outputs sound gestures. It has 3 sensors that sense the earth - temperature, altitude and light. These three earthly phenomena are mapped to the microcosmos the teaparty is. The physicality of the kettle invited us to have exposed electronics and a cradle like design. It is a playful way to make music, and also to have tea.

How does it work?

“teaparty” is an add-on to any common kettle. It features an LDR sensor attached to the kettle hatch, an altitude sensor enclosed in a water sealed buoy that enters the kettle's container; and a temperature sensor that captures the rising temperature as the kettle boils up.
