Past Resident Recognised in Celebration of Unorthodox Instruments

A big congratulations to Monica Rikic, one of our 2014 artists-in-residence, who has been nominated for the 2015 Guthman Musical Instrument Competition. Monica was recognised for her project, Buildacode, which she developed during her residency with The Cube last year.

The competition celebrates pushing musical boundries, and challenging the way instruments and music have traditionally worked.

Monica is among 20 semifinalists to receive international recognition for out-of-the-box musical creations. Instruments from this year’s semifinalists range from sculptable interfaces to the Space Age string instrument, the Yaybahar.

Keep an eye out for those colourful cubes – they will be showcased in the coming months and at Robotronica in August this year.
