Open source projects

customizable and modular

The instruments grow sharing projects, 3d drawings, electrical schemes, software code. They are made of modules and they can interface within each other.

Sound

Mixture of mechanics and electronics

The creation of sound generates from the continuous conversion of mechanical oscillations and electronics where filters are a mixture of both.

mechanical amplification

What do we create

A sound as mixture of vibration of wood, metal, skins and electrical amplification.

coco resonator

Ethnical tradition

Recovering of vibrant modules of the storical/ethnical tradition with modern usability.

kamancheh

Mechanical coupling

Vibrant parts (wood, skin and metal) couple to create mechanical filters to mix with electronics.

continuum piano

Non tempered

Non tempered instruments for a free sound rich in portamento, glissato, tremolo...

Our instruments

We have created instruments for violinist, pianists, djs.

Resin

Type3d resin violin with lightning
Date2016
MaterialsOlive, resin
Soungcoming..

A violin for dark stages and theater performances

Gaart

TypeCovibration of skin, wood and metal
DateAugust 2014
MaterialsNut, olive, iroko, oak, skin, iron
Soundcoming..

The bridge shakes the skin membranes that induce the vibration in the wooden resonator and the iron stick.

Strativari

Type3d multilayer violin
Date2017
MaterialsPoliu, wood paste, resin, olive
Soundsample

Full body violin composed on various layers: strativari in italian, sound waves propagates through different densisty means.

Wooder

TypeWooder loudspeaker, wood plates in vibrations
Date2015
MaterialsMultilayer, fir
Soundcoming..

Loudspeaker composed on woode vibrating plates on one axis and coated tweeter on the the other

MarCello

TypeRobust and handy cello
DateJanuary 2015
MaterialsBamboo, nut, olive, skin
Soundcoming..

The resonator develops the idea of dipole emission where four slits start from the bridge and are tuned for each string. The skins recover the vibrations to substain sound duration.

no-key-board

TypeTouch piano
DateMay 2014
MaterialsPlexiglass, led, wood, webcam
Soundsample

Keyboard without keys where each finger corresponds to a note and allows the typical effects of the violin like glissato and tremolo.

Mechanical music

TypeComposition for mechanical music
DateJuly 2014
MaterialsArduino, piezo, DC motors
Soundsample

Composition for mechanical music where each note is a mixture of percussive and melodic with important constraints on dynamics and strong portamento.

Elettronics

TypeAmplifiers
DateJune 2014
MaterialsOpAmp, passive components
Soundcoming..

Preamplifiers for microphones piezo used in the different instruments and motors drivers.

DSP - McAmp

TypeDigital sound processing
Date2019
MaterialsProgramming of digital sound processing
Soundcoming..

Controllers and programming for axoloti, teensy, arduino

Testing

Polimusician and deep expert in evolution of string instruments along the centuries, passionate about compositions from pre-barok to contemporary music and folk.

We

We are a small team of music passionate that develop new form of sound creating new instuments that follows the criteria of purity and non temperament.

We know

  • Sound generation

  • Composition

  • Luthery

  • Electronics

  • Mechanics

Join

Competences to develop such instruments are neverending, everybody who has passion for music can download the meterial and keep on developing a new sound based on wooden viration and electrical fintering.

We put in our instruments the sounds that hit our attention.
