Quadrofeelia - Quadrofeelia is an electronic instrument inspired by the expressiveness of the pedal steel guitar. The instrument has four "strings" which can be individually bent which enables unique gestures not available on most electronic instruments. It is a stand alone instrument with on-board sound synthesis.

Since these videos were taken I have had the opportunity to jam on Quadrofeelia with a group of musicians and it was very viable and very fun. I plan to continue making music with it.
