For the last years I've been working on new musical instruments, based on the idea of arranging the notes in a more logical and intuitive way, based on the circle of fifths.
The Striso is an electronic instrument combining this layout with pressure and direction sensitive buttons, giving an enormous range of musical expression. While the Striso has an embedded synthesizer and amplifier, I'm now focusing on a simpler version that sends MPE midi over USB to an external synthesizer, for example the open source Axoloti board.
I'll give an introduction, demonstration and insights about the choices I've made during the development. Afterwards there's plenty of time to try it out (in another tent I guess).
