One week from today, the Blackball performance group will debut new music on a new kind of instrument.
Meet the blackballophon, a MIDI controller we built out of spare robot parts, disused electric guitars and a blue chair.
We've used Arduino and Makey-Makey technology to create a musical control surface that provides beat-making and a good sit-down. Simultaneously.
Blackball performs at 6:00 PM Wednesday 20 June at the Toronto Kiwanis Boys & Girls Clubs' annual general meeting at 20 Portugal Square.
