My name is Brian and I am Rarebeasts. I'm an inventor, musician, and gadget freak that builds hand held electronic musical instruments that are so simple that anyone can play them.
Apart from creating and selling musical instruments I have also contributed articles to Make Magazine, writing how-to articles about the devices I build and play. Because I work from home it allows me time to look after my two kids (we get to make lots of cool projects) and I also play in a band called CupAndBow that makes music using the instruments that I create and build.
I've always liked music and electronics so I find my inspiration from marrying those two interests. I find that many mass produced electronic instruments are too complicated with menu systems forcing you to reach for the instructions every time you want to play, so I wanted to design simple instruments that do one simple task, that anyone could pickup and start playing.
You can find the designs for many of my instruments on my Instructables page.
