Inventing a New Musical Instrument – an Innovation Journey to Learn From

We are back on Campus Madrid, and this time we will host Madrid-based flutist and researcher Julián Elvira. Elvira has been working in the last 25 years on a new type of flute, a musical instrument which is part of the woodwind group. His incredible journey led him to develop a device that can reshape and invent the way we experience music. His flute is the last step of the modern flute development based on physical and mathematical conclusions of the instrument. If a regular flute can produce 55,000 tunes, Elvira's flute can produce more than 11,000,000; imagine the possibilities, Elvira has opened to us all! This is a unique opportunity to learn about innovation, persistence, vision, and execution. Elvira's story connects science, mathematics, technology, art and above all - Passion. This event is relevant to everyone – whether you are an aspiring artist, tech entrepreneur or business professional. The event will include a short performance by Elvira.
