Jiffer Harriman‘s work explores new approaches for interacting with sound through building digital music instruments and musical robots. His music instrument platform, Modular-Muse, has been used in music classes and workshops as a way introduce new ways of controlling with sound through programming and electronics. He earned his PhD from CU Boulder's ATLAS Institute, a master’s degree in Music, Science and Technology from the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics at Stanford University and is a 2002 graduate in electrical engineering from CU Boulder.
