Brian Alexander’s Synescope to Appear at Maker Music Festival
Have you heard about the Maker Music Festival? This year, it’s a global, online event being organized by Sherry Huss (Maker Faire co-creator) and the multi-talented maker-musician, Joe Szuecs.
Sherry tells us that she’s thrilled by the response they’ve been getting from maker-musicians around the world, so far including the US, UK, France, Germany, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, Argentina, Japan, China, and Malaysia.
The live online event is scheduled for May 15th and 16th, 2021. The Call to Makers for the event is currently open (First call until April 15th, 2021).
Here is one of the artists who’ll be appearing at the event.
Brian Alexander is an artist and maker from Michigan. His project, the Synescope, is a graphic-to-audio instrument where the player paints, draws, or manipulates graphic content on a turntable platter which then moves under sensors that change the sound output to create auditory textures.
