This is a quick demo of Yuri Suzuki’s Urushi Musical Interface – a gorgeous electronic music controller that looks a bit like it was left behind by aliens for Jean Michel Jarre to play.
The Urushi Musical Interface is a project for Collacqueration: Designed in the UK – Lacquered in Japan exhibition at the Embassy of Japan in the UK. The instrument is a touch panel musical interface which “uses principle of gold inlay.”
Check it out and let me know what you think of it! Would you give up a more traditional keyboard to try something new like this?
