Hot-wired musical greeting card microchip, ready for amplification, with anklet of articulating mercury-bead on-off switches, and toe-controlled pressure-pad voltage-regulator. Conceived by Jane Henry, built by Sukandar Kartadinata, in consultation with Nic Collins, at STEIM, Amsterdam.
Used in Jane Henry's piece, "The Chip is Down (Jerry Goes to Glory)", an homage to Jerry Hunt.

Violin with bows designed and/or built by Jerry Hunt and/or Sarmad Brody, and left-hand metal finger-thimbles.
The scraper bow, or arrow bow, is an arrow tightly wound with nylon fishing line made by Sarmad Brody. It is a larger version of the "grinder" bow designed and built by Jerry Hunt, and used in "Chimanzzi/Olun (core)" on his GROUND cd.
It is also used in Jane Henry's "Hands off the Homeless!", "Haarlem Hat Dream (Double)", and "Double Shadow", as well as in "Sleep Proves Impossible", a collaboration with Joel Ryan and Justin Bennet, and in many improvisations.
Finger thimbles are always used for the left hand fingers when playing with the arrow bow.
The smaller bow in the photo is built by Jerry Hunt, and has been refurbished by Utrecht luthier, Lambert Houniet. It uses only a few strands of nylon fishing line as "hair", as did Jerry's original model. It is also used in "Chimanzzi", and in "The Chip is Down".
