The Awesome Foundation, Boston chapter, just awarded musician and med student Tim Soo one of it’s $1000 grants. The foundation, which was launched in Boston and also has LA, Providence, New York City, San Francisco, and Washington D.C. chapters, gives no-strings-attached grants to “crazy brilliant” projects (such as a Cotton Candy Cannon or a Big Hammock in the Rose Kennedy Greenway).
Soo has built a number of Invisible Instruments, including the not-there violin in the video above and an unseen, iPod Touch-based guitar built for the recent Music Hack Day – Boston, an event at Microsoft NERD exploring new music software.
(More awesome: the piece Soo plays in this clip is the artist’s own composition.)
