Associate Professor Eric Goldemberg and MONAD Studio partner Veronica Zalcberg have been featured on BBC and Discovery News for the firm’s upcoming work at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York.
The project includes five different instruments, all 3D-printed and mounted onto a “wall of sound’ triptych made of CNC-milled, high-density foam panels that serve as an instrument rack, bandshell, and sonic device. Violin, cello, and guitar occupy the front of this free-standing spine, and the back will hold two new, unprecedented wind instruments in the family of the coiling drone-pipes. BBC calls MONAD Studio’s Piezoelectric Violin “one of the most radical musical instruments ever created.” Discovery News says that the violin “looks like the future of music.”
MONAD Studio is integrating architecture and music with the collaboration of seven FIU Architecture students. This is a new interdisciplinary project with musician Scott F. Hall to create a sonic installation with music performances at the Javits Convention Center by I.M.Pei from April 16th-17th. This is part of Professor Goldemberg’s research project for his upcoming book FEEDBACK: Architecture + Music, under contract with eVolo and distribution by ACTAR. (Source: CARTA News, February 2015)
