Bellyhorn has won its first prize!

It was picked as ‘best installation’ at the NIME Conference in Copenhagen last week. It’s been great to expose it to so many colleagues (counting the times I’ve washed the mouthpieces, at least 150 people have been trying it out…!), thanks a lot for hugging and playing!
