Two former students of the Bristol Interaction and Graphics group, Dan Newton and Lee Aromba, have been working on creating a brand new musicals interactions company called TangibleFX. Their aim is to give musicians new and innovative ways of controlling their sounds through iPhone apps and hardware. Recently they were fortunate enough to get through to the semi-finals of a national pitching competition called The Pitch 2012, to win £50,000 worth of business investment. Up against some very tough opposition they were selected as one of the wildcard entries competing through an online voting system for a place in the final at The Ministry of Sound in London on Friday November 16th.
Dan was responsible for the Augmentalist project, which I supervised.
