“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.
A powerful microcontroller for synthesis programmed through C++, Arduino, Pure data and Max MSP
A humidity sensor provides the actual humidity condition within the air at any given point or in any given place
A temperature sensor measures when change occurs in temperature
