Sequence 01 from Meng Shi on Vimeo.

Hold the Sonic Gun up to your ear, pull the trigger, and hope you survive. The Sonic Roulette plays on humanities’ risk taking values, disregard for noise pollution, and the physical repercussions of sound.


The electronics contain an Arduino Micro directly driving a small speaker. When the trigger is pulled, a sequence is initiated to select a frequency from an array, and only one space has a frequency above 0. If you’re lucky, you’re ear will get a nice dose of 0 hertz. If not…Good luck
