I am currently at work on re-designing the Vibrissa instruments. Still at the R&D stage, but we are making some good progress so far. I’ve had invaluable assistance from industrial designer friend Denis Smitka. It’s been great having access to professional tools as well as Denis’ skills and insights.
This new design will be easier to assemble, allow different playing heights, rod sizes and easier interchangeability of rods and tuning sets.
I finished the mixing the album recordings last month. Byron Scullin has just completed the mastering at Moose Mastering in Richmond. Can’t wait to see and hear these in vinyl form. (No label yet.)
