Meet the Makers: Walter Kitundu

05
Apr/10

Walter Kitundu is a multimedia artist at the Exploratorium, and works in the Learning Studio with us on everything from designing and building environments, facilitating activities, documentation, and more. He is also a gifted musician, instrument maker, and birder.

In this interview, also part of the Open MAKE event, he talks extensively about his work, from DJ-ing to turntable explorations that cover an incredible breadth (he designed and/or built more than 20 turntable-based instruments, including some earthquake- water-, and wind-powered ones).

He also concludes the interview by premiering his latest creation: a digital version of a kora, a traditional West African instrument.
