Laser Harp


After hearing about this from Tony Allgood and finally getting the chance to do the MIDI interface. I just had to see this awesome creation from Martin and Tracy Frankcom.

When he offered to bring it over to my house I didn't need asking twice. What Martin brought was not at all what I imagined.


It was this huge mass of power supply, industrial laser, galvo and laser receiving receptable (the goblet shaped thing covered in tin foil).

N.B  Galvo is the galvanometer which is a moving coil on one or more pivots with a mirror to reflect the laser.


powered up and running


Beams hitting the ceiling and passing through into upstairs ( only kidding )



Tonys scanning interface and photo detector amplifer gubbins.


Harp running prior to interface being added.
