Welcome to the official website of the midi-octopus.

The midi-octopus is a modular midi interface, designed to allow midi sequencing of objects in the local environment. With it, you can make all physical objects within the performance environment (chairs, lampshades, windows etc…) midi sequenceable.

This year has seen the midi-octopus gather some serious momentum with performances at The British Science Festival and as part of Supersonic’s Kids Gig at The Mac in Birmingham.

As well as devoting time to building it into a proper enclosure I have also designed and developed a number of specialist instruments, such as a bell ringer and a 16-step solenoid sequencer (see picture below).

Please take a look around this site and if you like what you see, why not let me know
