Note this is from 2009. See the Motus Mavis label below for more.

"Finalist Skot Wiedmann's untitled instrument houses discrete modular synthesizer circuit boards connected by a neural network of wires in a star-shaped interface. It has oodles of knobs for sound-tweaking.

The instrument's somewhat unpredictable nature is mitigated somewhat by performance controls: Rotating dials and blue touchpads shape and add elements to the sound, from theremin-like whines to shuffling beats. Imagine this magnificent contraption providing live accompaniment to a silent science-fi film screening."
