ABOUT ARTIPHON

Dr. Mike Butera

Artiphon designs connected devices and apps to empower the next billion musicians. Artiphon’s first two products, the INSTRUMENT 1 and Orba, launched to record-setting success and each raised over $1M on Kickstarter.

Dr. Mike Butera founded Artiphon in Nashville, Tennessee in 2011. He holds a Ph.D. in Sound Studies from Virginia Tech, has toured the country as a multi-instrumentalist, taught as a professor of sociology, and consulted globally as a consumer electronics designer. Mike’s doctoral work in the phenomenology of listening laid the groundwork for Artiphon’s design principles, and he frequently speaks on topics of music technology and augmented creativity.

The Artiphon team is composed of designers, musicians, and engineers from groundbreaking companies including Space X, Blue Origin, Line 6, and Yamaha. Investors include Warner Music Group, Steve Case, TechNexus in partnership with Shure, as well as other industry leaders.
