In addition to being a paid-up member of the synth DIY community, I am working on a series of control surfaces and musical instruments of my own. I am fascinated by innovations in music technology, from the theremin, to MaxMSP, via FM synthesis.

The instruments I am developing are designed to be accessible to musicians and non-musicians alike and are designed with simple interfaces and controls, whilst retaining the potential to be extremely flexible. I also feel that these devices, featuring light and motion sensors, sonar and accelerometers may be particularly accessible to people suffering from motor, cognitive or sensory conditions.

You can find more information on my experiments with instruments and interfaces in my blog.
