How music is played
How will these notes vary?
The range-finder coupled with E/D pairs on each side will measure the height at which the E/D pairs were triggered. This will directly influence the pitch/note played.
The single E/D pair on top is to enable play for a single person. Triggering this particular E/D pair would initiate a 20-second long percussion sequence which can act as a background tune while other tones are activated.
Photo-sensors on the smaller arc (red dots) will act as drum beats whenever someone taps on them. So in effect, for the player, it would be like a set of drums.
One photo-sensor will be kept on top next to the solar-panel for day-night detection and entering the module into power-save mode during night-time.
