Rodrigo y Gabriela are working with Mogees! Mogees is a brand new instrument app that turns the everyday objects around you into unique and powerful musical instruments. It works in conjunction with a small sensor that detects and analyses the vibrations that we make when we interact with the objects around us. It uses a special sound technique to alter their acoustic properties so as to make them musical.
Bruno, the founder of Mogees, met up recently with Rodrigo where they came up with this unique guitar fruitbowl jam on tamacun..
