Tenori-On: A new digital instrument 20 Aug 2007
Japanese artist Toshio Iwai and Yamaha have created a new digital instrument that can be played by anyone. The Tenori-On consists of a 16 x 16 matrix of LEDs that are sensitive to the musician's touch and can recognise simple physical gestures. For example, pushing one of the LEDs creates a ripple effect on the display and a rippling sound effect to match - and if the button is pushed long enough, the sound and light will loop repeatedly. Take a look at the video clip below, to see the instrument in action:
