Lior Arbel

I am an electrical engineer (BSc, Technion - Israel Institue of Technology), musician and designer. Currently, a PhD candidate at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, at the Faculty of Architecture/Industrial Design graduate program, supervised
by Prof. Yoav Schechner (Technion) and Dr. Noam Amir (Tel-Aviv University).
My goal as a researcher is to use technology and engineering to extend the boundaries of music: developing new musical instruments, musical sounds and musical experiences.
My PhD consists of the research and development of a new family of musical instruments combining musical wine glasses and strings. At the center of the research is a novel active instrument - The Symbaline, which uses electromagnetic actuation and signal processing to interface musical wine glasses to any other musical instrument.
As an engineer, my interests and skills include signal processing, acoustics, analog circuit design, signal integrity,
electro-optics and optimization algorithms.
As a musician, I play the clarinet, tenor saxophone, classical and electric guitar, compose and build electric guitars.
I enjoy literature, philosophy, art and running.
