Over the past few years I have developed bespoke tools for my own artistic practice, as part of research projects, and in collaboration with other musicians. I like to work with the Max/MSP and Pure Data visual programming environments, which allow for rapid prototyping of ideas through connecting boxes on screen (I can also provide training in this area). Much of my work in the world of hardware is fashioned in a similar way, held together with gaffer tape and crocodile clips.
