2011 Digital Media Studio Project by Matthew Collings, Gareth Griffiths & Giorgos Aposkitis developed for the University of Edinburgh
Project supervisors: Lauren Hayes & Christos Michalakos
"Our main goal through this project was to augment the electric guitar and link a familiar instrument to unexpected new sounds, changing this way the very nature of it and offering exciting possibilities for experimentation.
Instead of seeing a guitar amp as simply a method of increasing the signal from the pickups, the Acoustic Amp uses vibrations from guitar strings as sensor information. The Acoustic Amp uses Max/MSP to interact with the electric guitar via an arduino board."
