Eigenharp is much more than a harp

Last Revised: Thursday, January 17, 2013


Is time for another weird instrument. Check out my list of exotic instruments if you haven't. This time round is a 21st century instrument.

Started its development by Eigenlab a UK company in 2001 and was introduced to the world in 2009.
Eigenharp is by far one of the most expressive electronic instrument I have seen. Its design is very unique, unlike any kind of instruments you've seen before.. is like having various instruments and a computer crammed together as one..

Well is difficult to explain in full details what this instrument can do so here is a demo by the Eigenlab..

How Cool is that? A Midi powered instrument with sensitive buttons for you to press.. and you can even blow in it, I presume the wind controller functions the same to that of an EWI. In addition to all that they even have strip controller. Functions of loops play back...  and This..  live tweets displayed on the arrayed LED

For sure this machine can bring live performances to a whole new level..

As always I will end my post with a Music Video. BangStrokeBlow is an experimental music band that uses Eigenharp as their primary instrument.
