MMKamp ’10 hosted Ralf Schreiber with workshop on wind and sun powered instruments. Workshop was focused partially on recycled plastic botlles that were used as wind mills that were introduced as a way to power machines.
This is short video showing a concept with 4 bottles on fixed pivot (pivot moves together with the propellers, for the difference where propellers move and pivot is static).

Time Inventor Kabinet crew worked on wind clocks, and tested them:
first TIK windclock for calculating windtimes (from TIK WIKI)
This years MMKamp will serve as a fringe activity to one EU funded project TIK, or better its yearly meeting on Korčula island in Croatia. TIK (Time inventors Kabinet) will host people from Belgium, Czech, Slovakia and Austria and MMKamp from Germany and Croatia. This international crew will from 24th of September to 01st of October work with joined efforts to build up wind-clocks, unique time measurement devices, and work on how can wind power small electronic musical devices. Besides workshops an event will create music nights filled with experimental and electronic sounds.
