Mubone Augmented Trombone (Ongoing)

Digital Instrument Design

Here’s the first prototype of mubone, an augmented trombone outfitted with electronic sensors and controls. It takes advantage of the trombone’s directionality/physicality and incorporates movement/space as expressive inputs.

With support from the Marin Alsop Entrepreneurship Award and Harvestworks.
