December Community Roundup


This has been such an exciting and eventful time here at Artiphon. There are now thousands of INSTRUMENT 1’s out in the world, and things are really starting to heat up. If you follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, you’ve probably seen some of the great photos, videos, and blog posts people are sharing.

Kickstarter backer Parth Raval is building up entire songs using his INSTRUMENT 1 and Apple’s Logic… 


We saw our first performance where the INSTRUMENT 1 was the part of a string quartet…


Dave shared his rendition of Little Martha (in honor of Duane Allman’s birthday)…


Nate covered a song by the band Marillion…


And of course Will continues to share covers that range from Red Hot Chili Peppers to Star Wars to Stairway.

Also, Gustav in Japan found some smooth flute sounds, Heather discovered some sounds from outer space, Ken has been using custom tunings and tap guitar (and blogging in depth about his observations), and Shawn posted an insightful and excellent INSTRUMENT 1 walkthrough focused on guitar techniques.

It’s also nice and flattering to see the critics taking notice of the INSTRUMENT 1. Jordan from said “it makes him want to get back into music.” PC Mag listed it among its Beautiful But Practical Tech Gifts, and TechCrunch celebrated it as a “jack of all trades.”

We’re so inspired by what’s bubbling up from the user community, and we’d love to see what you’ve been up to with your music-making. 

Demonstrating the INSTRUMENT 1 at MoMA

We had a very special invitation in January to come to the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan – widely considered one of the most influential art museums in the world – and demonstrate the INSTRUMENT 1 for guests. The occasion was the final week of MoMA’s exhibit titled Making Music Modern: Design for Ear and Eye. It was a dynamic collection that included pop art, iconic pieces of audio electronics from Braun and Bang & Olufsen, a mint condition 1964 Fender Stratocaster, and two plate glass windows that played Brian Eno’s Music for Airports using declassified Navy audio technology.

We would like to thank the Kickstarter backers and other supporters who came out and said hello. And a deep thank you to MoMA for the rare and thrilling opportunity.
