A Small Stubborn Sound Machine is a playful DIY sound instrument. Its mainly build from used objects. Like milk containers as sound boxes for guitar strings and a solenoid drum machine made of a cardboard phone package. The two salad bowls on top are each filled with a hand full of otherwise wasted electronic capacitors for both colour matching and creating some noise.
The audience can make the Stubborn Sound Machine play by dialing the three rotary telephone dials. With those you can control the speed, rhythm and capacity. After dialling a starting number for each element sound starts and can be changed continuously by playing with the dials.
