CNN reports that accomplished Marimba Soloist Kyungho Jeon’s blindness made it difficult for him to play with an orchestra. So Kyungho looked to Rolf, Gehlhaar, and his son, Vahakn Matossian, the founders of the organization called Human Instruments. Kyungho, Vahakn, and Rolf teamed up to create the Haptic Baton. Kyungho and Vahakn will join us to explain the new invention and adaptive music technology.
