Tenori-On is finally here

Tenori-On

I hinted at it in the previous post, but Tenori-On, the fantastic instrument by Toshio Iwai and Yamaha, will be launching in the UK. This September, Yamaha will showcasing this brand new and visually stunning interactive live performance instrument through a selection of carefully selected record shops across the country.

Tenori-On has been at many media arts festivals during its development since 2001, such as Sonar, Futuresonic, Ars Electronic, Siggraph and Art Futura, as well as road testing from a few selected electronic artists, but this launch is the first time the public will get their hands on it to such a scale outside of this field.

From 4th September, Tenori-On will be on display at these record shops:

ALT VINYL, Newcastle
BLACK MARKET, London
EDGEWORLD, Brighton
FAT CITY RECORDS, Manchester
NOG GALLERY, London
PHONICA RECORDS, London
ROOTED RECORDS, Bristol
RUB A DUB RECORDS, Glasgow
TEMPEST RECORDS, Birmingham
UNDERGROUND SOLUSHUN, Edinburgh

Launch event
Phonica Records, London – Tues 4th September, 6pm, FREE.
The launch event will see inventor Toshio Iwai talk and answer questions on the TENORI-ON plus live performances from a selection of artists lucky enough to be asked to road test this exciting new instrument, including: Robert Lippok (To Rococo Rot), Secondo (Dreck Records), Capracara (Soul Jazz Records) + More.

    I wonder what the final price will be? They were saying they hoped for $500.

    I saw him demo this last year. the only person in the room who was impressed was the guy who made it. he was clearly very pleased with himself.
