The Samchillian – a musical instrument based on relativity

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


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.
