The Chuppers, facilitated by Manny Rettinger, create musical instruments which combine old and new technology, including audio processors, speakers, computers, microphones, cameras, phonograph horns, traditional and non-traditional instruments, projectors and more. Rettinger says, “Standing on the shoulders of giants, we boldly go where others have gone before”.
