Meet Stephanie Cheng Smith, and her whimsical and charming b-z-bowls—an electro-acoustic modular instrument that comprises an array of vibration motors that excite plastic bowls filled with a non-random selection of everyday objects. Stephanie is a musician, composer, and programmer who skilfully combines all of her talents, and interests into a unified sound-centered artistic practice. The range of her output encompasses composed and improvised pieces for violin, electronics, as well as her own instruments. She is also a member of Ensemble Uhhhhhmm (formerly known as Lil' Jürg Frey)—a virtual experimental quartet that exists solely within Nintendo's Animal Crossing: New Horizons environment.
