Very cool!Hi-tech new instrument, for sure!The reason you (and most, I'm sure) have never heard of this instrument is that it's brand new:The Eigenharp is Alive!The second video on the above site is a product demo - pretty amazing!The two guys from your "Bond Theme" video are actually Eigenlabs "employees".Great find!
"And that was a good one, wasn't it?"Are you kidding me? That was at least 14.5 kinds of incredible.At least.
That thing is like a self-contained discotheque! Fun at parties!
Woooooow.Totally reminds me of that scene from Star Wars where the fish guys were playing things that looked kind of similar....
Racheal,You too?!But I wonder, how much they're actually playing and how much is sort of programmed in, like a "boom-chicka" beat on an electronic keyboard.Julie
Can't EVEN compare to an accordian.
I had actually seen this instrument displayed some time back and sent the article to a friend of mine who is into Celtic music and likes odd instruments. But I had forgotten about it until Rachael reminded me of this post here. Fascinating. It will be interesting to see how well it sells. It's actually similar to a "Chapman Stick," albeit electronic with some other bells and whistles.
Musical instruments as high-tech as this make me wonder: What kind of music would the likes of Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven have written had they gotten their hands on one of these??
It is indeed impressive...but not cheap.http://www.eigenlabs.com/alpha/
