Dewanatron: Dual Primate Console

Dewanatrons to make music in real time, suitable for concert performance, live recording, or to be broadcast over the airwaves. The special purpose of Dewanatrons, which are modern solid-state analog instruments, is to grow music live in collaboration with the operators who guide them. Each of the instruments are hand crafted and intended to work in tandem with one another.

I had the opportunity to observe Leon and Brian performing this weekend at the Armory Show. They had several pieces of equipment with them, including the Dual Primate Console (pictured above). The music was just as wonderful and fascinating to hear as those devices are to see. Check out some samples on their site.
