Flower Electronics manufactures high quality, unique musical instruments for the education, sound art, and noise communities. In addition, Flower Electronics presents hands-on electronics workshops at schools, galleries, and museums.
Flower Electronics products emphasize creativity, utility, durability, and freedom. Instruments are built with care in small batches, using the highest quality materials available, and are designed to last a lifetime.
Designed by Jessica Rylan, the instruments draw on the best of 1960's and 70's modular synthesizers, 1980's guitar effects pedals, chaos theory, and old-fashioned intuition. This breadth of influence is distilled into a strikingly original and immediate sound.
