Midi instruments have often looked toward the audio mixer for methods of controlling sound, the Mimbre is an orb that desires to be played with the persistence of constant pressure and the violent recoil of the archer's bow.
3 of these devices will be made.
Much of my work here at ITP has been directed towards interaction with sound and space. Particulary devices that offer a less direct relationship between action and outcome, result in an instrument that plays you back. I wanted to create an instrument that could match the virtuosity of the player, drawing in beginners and keeping them intrigued through their exploration with all Mimbre's possibilities.
