Phantom Power – Exoskeleton analog synthesizer


Created and performed by Yingjie Bei, Phantom Power is an exoskeleton analog synthesizer. Built as a man/machine interface instrument, the device is performed with hand gestures and screwdrivers by manipulating the circuit. The performance in the video below took place at the ITP NIME 2015 @ the Bell House Brooklyn in December 2015.

Yingjie Bei is a digital media designer currently a master candidate at ITP-TISCH-NYU designing digital objects that are emotional, tangible and connect users and technology in creative, communicative and engaging way.
