Pauline Eveno has always been fond of music (more than 20 years of flute practice and bass more recently) and she began to work on musical acoustics 10 years ago. Since then, she did several internships, research contracts and one PhD, in several countries with an only guiding aim: the acoustics of musical instruments, and especially focused on the innovation in the musical instruments craftsmanship.

Pauline Eveno has a PhD in Acoustics (PhD at Ircam and research at Cité de la Musique, Paris, as well as at McGill University, Montreal). She is currently working, in collaboration with designers, on a platform aiming at providing saxophone mouthpieces customization. On this platform, musicians will be able to explain their needs (in term of timbre, ease of play…) by filling a detailed form. Their answers will lead to the design of mouthpieces geometries corresponding to their needs, which will be 3D printed in high quality materials. She offers, during SaxOpen, to present her prototypes and have them tested by the musicians who wish it.
