This year Maker Faire Austin is fortunate to have AudioBody performing. Matt Tardy and Steve Corning combine music, comedy, and technology to perform an electrifying show which includes kaleidoscopic LED strobes, thrilling visuals, juggling, music, contortion and hilarity. The outcome is a show which entertains people of all ages, whether you are 3 years old or 103. They create and build wacky musical inventions including a 15 foot wide drum set rigged with bungee cords, a button mashing robot, and electronic jumpsuits that create sound effects as well as play music. AudioBody’s multifaceted training, and one-of-kind performance has brought them all over the US and abroad. Some highlights include the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas, Disney Cruise Lines, and even The White House in Washington DC three times! You may also have seen them on America’s Got Talent, CBS Sunday Morning, Inside Edition, and David Letterman.
