Hi. I’m Tim Place and 74 Objects LLC is my small company focusing on design and architecture for interactive systems in music and the arts.  This largely means the design and architecture of software and hardware that constitutes such systems.

I’ve created interactive installations leveraging electronics with custom-built sensors, actuators, micro-controllers, networking, spatialized sound, and custom-made cabinetry.  I’ve taught full semester courses on these subjects at both the graduate and undergraduate levels at the University of Missouri – Kansas City and the Kansas City Art Institute.  Besides co-founding Electrotap, I’m also an active Cycling ’74 insider.  At you’ll find my thoughts, reflections, and insights on these topics and how these topics intermingle with the general software development and business worlds.
