Inventor’s Quorum:

Neil Feather/Rosie Langabeer- Two To Tutu Too
Tom Nunn/ Kevin Corcoran/ David Samas- Pet the Tiger

His instruments each embody uniquely clever acoustic and engineering principles, and are visually arresting. The music he plays on the instruments is equally original, embodying new principles and resulting in a nearly alien idiom of music.  More...
