YY Klepto Opera AKA Tokoh Antagonist

Melawan Kebisingan Kota stage 8

Halte GOR Sidoarjo

Ini sedikit cerita tentang senjata bising yg sudah hampir 4 bulan ini saya kenalkan dan mainkan di mana2. Senjata bising ini terbuat dari penggiling daging bekas, yang bisa mengeluarkan suara menggerinda layaknya gitar2 grindcore. Kebetulan sekali, saya mendapat kesempatan mempromosikan alat tsb untuk presentasi di ITS sama anak2 waftlab.

Ide alat tsb sebenarnya sdh lama sekali, di utak atik hingga tanpa sengaja muncul dgn sendirinya. Sebenarnya, niat awal saya adalah membuat intunarumori, alat noise pertama kali di dunia, sudah saya gambar2, saya desain tp selalu gagal.

Yang membuat gagal adalah, saya tidak bisa menemukan jenis membran yg lentur, kuat dan tidak mudah robek meskipun tertembus senar bass. Sempat trpikir mnggunakan kulit hewan sbg membran, tp suaranya mungkin mendem, tdak nyaring kecuali alatnya besar seperti intunarumori asli. Tapi saya butuh alat yg flexibel,ringkas dibawa kemana2, dan bisa menimbulkan suara nyaring, maka intunarumori manual trpaksa dibatalkan.

Ketika ide sudah buntu, pikiran sdh mentok, disitulah jalan terbuka, bini saya menyuruh buang barang2 dapur yg jd sarang tikus. Disitulah nampak alat bekas penggiling daging/ikan yg sudah berkarat, punya mertua waktu dulu sering bikin pempek. Secara tekstur dan fungsi trnyata (menurut saya) penggiling daging ini hampir2 mirip dgn intunarumori, keinginan terjawab! tinggal realisasi.

Untuk urusan eksekusi alat saya serahkan ke Toyol Dolanan Nuklir, DIA AHLINYA! ide saya suara harus semirip mungkin dgn intunarumori.

Ternyata ada masalah sepele, senar bass ga bisa dipake bermusuhan dgn penggiling daging karatan, mudah putus dan harganya mahal. Masalahnya terpecahkan oleh si toyol, dia pake seling bekas rem sepeda kakeknya, mirip senar bass namun jauh lebih kuat, gratis tentu saja.

Nahh seperti inilah alat bising itu tercipta dan selalu saya bawa kemana2 tiap perform, siapa tahu diantara kalian ada yg sudah pernah melihatnya.
