TEDxAmericasFinestCity – Bill Wesley – Geometry of Music

Geometry of emotion through array orchestra. Bill Wesley Inventor / Musician — Array Orchestra Bill Wesley was born into a family of scientists, artists, and writers. In this lively intellectual atmosphere, he began to produce shows featuring live musical composition and live visual animation. To facilitate better sound and light in these shows he designed various new types of instrumentation. In this spirit the Array System of note arrangement was conceived. Because of this unique musical arrangement, the experience of playing an Array instrument is that less shifting around of movement is required for playing all chord progressions. With multiple duplications of all notes available, complex voicing of notes are also within reach — allowing the player to access the same notes with each hand in different locations similar to four hands on two pianos. Bill Wesley has invented and manufactured with Patrick Hadley, a wide variety of Array instruments right here in San Diego. These include the Array Mbira, two types of Array MIDI Controllers, the Array Nail Violin, the Array Rasp, the Array Drum, the Array Rhythm Machine, the Array Guitar, the Array Psaltry, and the Array Vina. TED was founded in 1984. The annual TED conference brings together the world’s leading thinkers and doers to share ideas that matter in a variety of disciplines — technology, entertainment, science, humanities, business, art, design. Short talks, demonstrations and performances are given by hand
