Come celebrate unconstrained creativity at the Red Room with Neil Feather, composer and instrument inventor, and Bella and Tom Rohrer, a duo from Brazil.
Neil Feather will present VIBROWHEELS GALORE! A vibrowheel is a flywheel mounted with multiple vibrating motors that spin past sets of guitar pickups to create throbbing rhythms and Doppler effects. There will be five vibrowheels hand-spun and mixed into 8 channels. Plus a magnapooter and a cocolina.
