A presentation from 2023–2024 Rieman and Baketel Fellow for Music Harry Mairson

At Radcliffe, Mairson is building a digital library of iconic instruments from the Italian golden age of violin making. The work includes deconstructing this data into the proportional Renaissance geometry that was used to design these instruments, further work on a “cello compiler” that translates these designs into computer numerically-controlled fabrication, and using computer-manipulable representations of this Renaissance geometry to explain the evolution of instrument forms.
