Midi Machines

Between 2011 and 2014 these custom midi machines were made in collaboration with music producer Steve Mensink (aka Frits Wentink) and handy man Paulus van der Heijden (aka DJ+). These controllers were all handmade, custom built with premium laser-engraved wood and handselected knobs and sliders.

One of the designs we made was inspired by Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh, and was exhibited during the Grote 8 Expo in the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam in 2013. Very proud how these turned out.

The machine was created for and displayed at the 'De Grote Acht Expo' in Amsterdam.
