Self-Playing Musical Instruments

Maywa Denki designed some unusual and eye-catching self-playing musical instruments.

Maywa Denki, a unique musical instrument store, is the brainchild of brothers Masamichi and Nobumichi Tosa.

The brothers' visual and musical approach is inspired by anything from electronic store uniforms to self-playing instruments, and their history is rooted in musical instruments.

That's why they designed a set of instruments driven by associated electrical components that function independently when connected to a computer, resulting in a theater-like performance.

For example, they developed Otamatone, a touch-sensitive electronic musical synthesizer that looks like a cross between a flute and a saxophone. Edelweiss, a self-playing marimba with flowers, unfolds as they play the music and folds when they stop.

Semons, a diaphragm-driven singing machine, pumps air into its rubber-based artificial vocal chord, which is controlled by computer software.
