UPDATED DATE: We have a big, exciting delivery coming to The Skillery on Friday, July 1 — we ordered a guitar, a piano, electronic drums, a synth and a bunch of other instruments. Luckily, we won’t need to rearrange the furniture, since all of it is gonna fit in a backpack.
Our new band-that’d-fit-in-a-bag: Nashville-based Artiphon’s new Instrument 1, one of the Best Inventions of 2015 according to TIME magazine, and one of the coolest musical things to ever come out of Nashville according to us.
The beginner-friendly instrument, paired with Artiphon’s mobile app, mimics dozens of instruments both in sound and feel — you strum, you pluck, you tap, and even if you’re not particularly adept musically, something cool comes out. We can’t wait to play with our Instrument 1, and if you’d like to come check it out/learn about it too, you’re invited.
Added bonus: Artiphon founder/CEO Mike Butera will be here with our unit (and some demo units and an amp) to walk us through making beautiful Instrument 1 music.
Mike is coming by The Skillery at 11 a.m., and we’ll be learning and playing for a while. Come on over to 1323 Sixth Ave North and explore (we’d love an RSVP, so we know how many people to expect.)
