So my big news is that Brainstruments, my book project, is mentioned in the current issue of UK Wired (Smart List 2012 on the cover). I can’t tell you how chuffed I am about this. As design and tech geek I have read Wired for years so I’m delighted to actually appear in it. If I had to pick one publication to cover the project, this would be it. A fabulous way to start 2012. A big thanks to David, Tom and UK Wired team.

The piece is in the UK print and iPad edition (Smart List 2012 on the cover) but you can see the piece online here www.wired.co.uk/magazine/archive/2012/02/play/musical-talent

The piece doesn’t mention the main point I’m making in the book, which is that a musical instrument is a mental model.   A summary paper of my thinking and research can be downloaded here.
