Experimental Music-Instruments

Experimental Music-Instruments project is composed of several different instruments like Lego Sequencer, White Magic, Wireless Catcher, among others. The works provide non-verbal communication and the users can understand how to use the tools by intuition. The sounds of the works are constructed by combining simple systems intricately. Playing sounds using crisp bread instead of vinyl records; pieces of Lego instead of synthesizer keys, etc, it is more about building music or finding sounds than playing.

Yoshi Akai is a sound artist and instrument maker. He makes beautiful experimental music instruments using contemporary and traditional technique. Nowadays, he does performances with the original musical instruments he has been producing with creative gadgets.
