Eric Goldemberg and Veronica Zalcberg
Co-founders, Monad Studio
Monad Studio’s eye for futuristic architecture and ear for “sci-fi” sounds have led to it becoming a pioneer in the world of 3-D printed instruments. But the dozen designs for violins and guitars don’t sound like classical music. Rather, co-founder Eric Goldemberg describes the sounds from the compositions of plastic and titanium as more experimental and almost “noise-like music.”
“Musicians are faced with these strange forms where they not only just have one or two strings, but they also have an emotional reaction to these forms,” he says of the studio’s creations.Monad Studio has also collaborated with musician Viktoria Modesta, turning the bionic pop artist’s body into an instrument. Monad is now creating its largest instrument yet: a piano through a collaboration with Bluthner. Other new designs include an electric guitar and a wind instrument that coils around the player.
“It’s like an alien piece that surrounds the body and as you blow into it,” he says. “The music goes around you.”
