These beautiful, hand-held, wooden panpipe-type theengs present characteristics of multiple instruments in world muusic. It is believed that somewhere along the line, an accompanying bag would have originally been present – but over time got cast aside, like some kind of scotch appendix. Designed by Swoomptheeng to be the ultimate DJ tool, these pipes emit trendy drone music and control games or music software using SuperVGA’s Blueteeth connection.
They have motion sensors, touchpads, twisty-locky bits and a blow hole of course.
The Swoompipe was commissioned by BCU’s Maker Monday programme.
