The Instrument For Everyone - Artiphon Instrument 1
This is the instrument air drummers and guitarists of the world have been waiting for. We all have rhythm, but not all of us have found the instrument that can show these musical talents. That is until now. The Artiphon looks beautiful, sounds amazing and is being pitched to musicians and humans with musical desire but no current talents. Designed in one of the music capitals of the world, Memphis, Tennessee. It's definitely something Elvis would have rocked up with.
Introducing the Artiphon INSTRUMENT 1
You can play the instruments any way you want. It can be programmed and integrated into numerous apps and existing musical software. The Instrument 1 grows with you as you explore new styles of playing. You can increase complexity as you go, allowing for greater control over every aspect of your performance with its feather-touch playing surface. It's always in tune, and you'll never break a string!
Mike Butera, CEO and Founder of Artifon has the following vision:
"We believe anyone can make music, and that most people really want to. Like snapping an Instagram, now you don't have to already be a professional to start making music and enjoy every note. We’re building an instrument that empowers people to play music apps beyond the touchscreen, and we want to inspire people to explore music-making in their everyday lives."
With the Artiphon Instrument 1 likely to be the first in a series of creations from these guys it is definitely one to watch. I want one for those late fireside sessions when I really wish I was a musical genius and wonder why the guitar isn't working! Check them out on Kickstarter and watch the demo tune it's awesome.
