One Handed Bagpipes
AT Hackathon 2020
Julie has been bagpiping for many years for different occasions, but she is particularly touched by the services for the recently deceased, so she can play to bring a sacred honor to their life when so many around them feel so helpless. This project is to help Julie be able to play once again, this time with only her left hand.
Brainstorming, Iteration, Fabrication
We worked closely with Julie to decide what made musical sense. We brainstormed different options for our designs, created multiple iterations and prototypes and settled on our current design.
Resources and Inspirations
Because there are no adaptations for bagpipes to be played with one hand, we used these other instruments as our inspiration.
