Music

Scottish sound designer, the Amazing Rolo, traveled to Maker Faire this year especially to see what sorts of cool musical technologies people were cooking up. He made a series of videos of makers demoing their wares. Of the three videos above, he writes:

First up is Elly Jessop, a Masters Student at the uber-cool MIT Media Lab, and her Vocal Augmentation and Manipulation Prosthesis (VAMP). Next is Barry Threw, from Keith McMillan Instruments, showing off the K-Bow (and accompanying software) for extending stringed instrument performance into the digital realm. And finally, the amazing Moldover and his totally bonkers Syncomasher.

  1. Really glad you liked the videos! The Maker Faire was absolutely amazing, I can’t wait to do it again. It was a brilliant place to show off my work and see the incredible projects that people are working on. I came back to Scotland inspired and exciting to keep on working.

    Thanks to everyone involved in putting the Faire together, I’m already starting to think of things to do for next year!
