The Instrument That’s the Key to Electronic Music’s Future | WIRED

The LinnStrument can be played on a flat surface or slung low over the shoulder, keytar-style. Like a guitar, fingering patterns and chord shapes are identical, regardless of key. It’s also possible to time-stretch staccatos and crescendos or pitch-shift notes by bending them like Silly Putty. A musician can even make two notes go in separate directions, a trick that’s impossible to do on a conventional keyboard. Without the usual rules or limitations, possibilities abound. In this video, LinnStrument coder Geert Bevin composes a song for his dog Droopy that sounds like something from a Wes Anderson soundtrack.
