AUTOVIOLA /// 2022-...

Autoviola is an ongoing project, which, together with two other instruments, is forming the basis of my PhD thesis. It's an acoustic bowed string instrument, capable of playing up to 5-note chords, with additional possibility of full digital control of the pitch for various digital augmentations and manipulations. Current version, still under construction, is a third iteration of the design, after a couple of experimental features has been tested and verified.
