Synthesizers have been dominating the music scene for quite some time now. These revolutionary instruments allow players to create many different sounds and modify them with lots of different effects. Most of these instruments are fairly simple to understand, but some breeds of synthesizers are so unusual that we're not even sure if it's right to call them musical instruments after all.
Devices such as the unique "Thingamakit" allows users to make music by moving and touching their own skin through a series of bracelets that harness the electrical signals coming from the human body and turn them into sounds and notes.
For something that feels a little more like an actual musical instrument, have a look at the inventive "Opal Sonome Keyboard", a synth with an intuitive configuration that has been conceived to help people find better musical relationships between the notes. It is so easy to use that even hamsters can make great melodies on it.
For something that looks out of a science fiction story, have a look at the Steampunk Electrochemical Synthesizer, an idea that bridges the gaps between science and music.
So many options to make music: anything is possible and anyone can make it. Visit us for a first taste, find a class that suits you.
