Tympano

By Maria S.

I chose a common plastic pot and plastic film (ultracote), which has the capacity to resist and is used in coatings for R/C model aircraft. The film has the capacity to some extent temperature to sticking, shrinking and taking any form we want.

After selecting pot and purchased the film, we began the construction of the body adjusting to the opening of the pot and stamping on the perimeter using strong adhesive tape. After, a special iron temperature at specific degrees, we iron film on the top of the pot to shrink and stretch, taking the form of an actual film crust.

Finally, what remained was to open at hole at the bottom of the pot to get a better audio performance.

Hit its membrane with hands and a great rhythm is sounded.
