The Chuppers (UNM Electric Ensemble)

The Chuppers

The Chuppers are sound & video contraptions put together from various components that offer unique and hands-on “instruments” for creative inspiration. At the Mini Maker Faire, there will be a Diorama Chupper that will allow folks to stage a miniature “set” and with cameras and video mixer, insert their face in the scene, taking their own Chupper portrait, which will be emailed to them immediately. We will also have some audio Chuppers for all to manipulate to provide sound ambiance.
