Senior Research: Eric Baum

December 11th, 2010

Eric Baum recently completed his senior research project for a BA in Digital Arts – Sound.  He decided to design and build a combination electric and bass guitar that he then enhanced with a variety of sensors.  He used the Teabox from Electrotap to manage his sensor connections and built a Max/MSP patch to allow him to loop, filter and process the output from his guitar.  The results can be seen and heard in the following video:

Custom Music Sensor Interface – 6 min, 17 sec

When he is not making custom instruments, Eric is co-manager and bassist for Run Rhino.  I am proud to have advised Eric during his time at Stetson and through this project.  I look forward to seeing what the next steps in his career will be.
