The ‘Win an Eigenharp Alpha’ competition is over and Eigenlabs announced the winners. Sadly yours truly was just one place away from the grand Eigenharp Alpha prize, but I did win the runner up prize, which is Arturia’s Software Synth Collection.
I have to say that I’m somewhat surprised by the selection of the winners since I found that there are many other competition entries that show much more expressiveness and prowess on the Eigenharp Pico. In case you’re interested, here’s a page with all the entries.
Here’s the complete announcement from Eigenlabs:
After much deliberation on the part of the judges we are pleased to announce the winner of the ‘Win an Eigenharp Alpha’ competition is:
It was a very hard competition to judge – there were an good number of great entries and the general standard, particularly playing on a totally new instrument, was very good.
The runner ups
We’d also like to announce that we will be awarding runner up prizes of a copies of Arturia’s Software Synth Collection (worth £400) to Lukasz Piwek (Geek On Acid) for his ‘Spontaneous Electronic Facilitation’, and Geert Bevin for his ‘Winter Movement’:
The honourable mentions
Honourable mentions and an Eigenlabs laptop bag go to Kayla Kavanagh for her solo Pico piano performance in York Minster and to Piotr Chlipalski and Irene Folusz for both the first Pico duet and the first Pico version of ‘Smoke On The Water’, which made John Lambert laugh a lot.

Congratulations and thanks to everyone who took part – we all really enjoyed seeing entries come in and watching people’s Pico skills evolve throughout the competition was fantastic.
