My Roles
  • Software Design 
  • Hardware Design
  • Fabrication

Health -> Performance
Initially I created a hardware system which uses 10 force-sensitive resistors to monitor the expenditure of energy and identify pain points in professional saxophonists’ finger technique.

The instrument I built uses that hardware, mounted on a modified bamboo shoot which contains a taut spring (for reverb), electrified via contact microphone, to allow percussive and vocal sounds to be processed.
