Travis West is a multidisciplinary programmer, composer-performer, and musical instrument designer. His research explores the design of gestural interfaces, sound synthesis algorithms, and the mappings made between the two. These inquiries culminate in the creation of new digital musical instruments and interactive systems such as the body:suit:score, a full-body wearable vibrotactile musical score, and the mubone, a trombone-enabled digital-acoustic musical instrument made in collaboration with trombonist Kalun Leung. Travis completed his Bachelor in Electroacoustic Music Composition at Concordia University in 2017, and is currently studying his Master in Music Technology at McGill University.
