Antiquity Music has announced a Kickstarter project to fund development of the Wheelharp – a new electromechanical keyboard.
Antiquity Music is seeking to raise $50,000 in order to launch the Wheelharp, a musical instrument that gives you the ability to bow a full chromatic set of real strings using a keyboard.
The Wheelharp is designed to put the actual sound of multiple bowed string instruments at the player’s fingertips. According to the company, “the Wheelharp gives its player a rich sound palette of actual bowed strings that cannot be matched by synthesis or sampling.”
Here’s the official Kickstarter video:
