The Haken Continuum and the OtamaTone – 2 Insanely Cool Instruments [Videos]

The Haken Contnuum

The Haken Continuum is one of the sickest instruments I’ve ever seen, and it better be for a hefty $5290 for a full size one. Since it’s a midi controller mixed with a keyboard mixed with a huge touch pad, it can pretty much do it all.

The OtamaTone

The OtamaTone is one of those instruments that once you’ve got one you still might not be able to figure out why, but you’d still be happy about it. For $52, why not? Also I found people who buy an OtamaTone, also often buy this Stylophone Beatbox for a cool $27 + shipping. Watch the next video and you’ll see why:

The Samchillian – a musical instrument based on relativity

Eitan Shefer’s graduation project from the Bezalel academy of art and design.

http://eshefer.com

An electronic musical instrument which takes Leon Gruenbaum’s samchillian concept and defines a possible product design for it. The challenge was to make an aesthetic, ergonomic, musical product which could be used on stage by a musician.

the samchillian is a new type of musical instrument which uses the concept of relative notes, rather then fix pitches (as in a piano).

The film was made by Eitan Shefer in a collaboration with motion graphics wizard Eric Lerner.
