We have a new page at Praxis Guitars that features videos that we have made documenting the Praxis Zero and various other projects. More videos will be online soon.
For those of you in the Denver/Front Range area, Praxis Guitars will be present at a panel discussion regarding “Innovations in Sound Creation and Music Making” at the Denver Maker Faire. Presentation begins at 2:00 pm and features a number of speakers from the local music community.
We are offering another small batch of special edition guitars for purchase in celebration of our source code release..
We have released the full source code for the Praxis Zero mk2 Mantis.
You can now go download the guitar and have it fabricated on CNC machinery.

A23P of the noise group Sirhc Neila used the Kimura Gumo during their performance at the 2015 Denver Noise Fest. To the best of our knowledge the Kimura Gumo was not responsible for the power outage.
You can now purchase guitars from the first production run of the Praxis Guitar Zero from our Etsy site. Only 10 available in this round.

Incredible thanks go out to everyone who showed up last night for the showcase. Now that that is done, we will be focusing on updating this website. Pictures and video from the event are forthcoming, and we are working on a complete overhaul for the website. For orders and questions, please email info@praxisguitars or call (720) 295 6777.
Demos and discussion about new and radical musical instruments and tools from Praxis Guitars and Chris Mandel (Cloudless Rain).
There will be opportunities to interact with the inventors/engineers as well as live performances featuring the new instruments/tools.
Presentations start at 7:00. Our first exhibition will feature a demo of Siren, by Cloudless Rain. Siren is a software-based electronic semi-random music generator which spontaneously creates endless variations of music based on simple user direction. Discussion topics will included the use of random number generators for composition, modular programming, and robot apocalypse.
The second presentation will feature the open source guitars made by Praxis Guitars. These guitar prototypes bring new engineering ideas to further the scope of possibilities for guitarists and use open source hardware and software to unlock new potentials for the future of human – instrument development.
