Neat sound.

“The new Hyperviolin is the latest of the series of Hyperinstruments designed for expert musicians (the first Hyperviolin was created more than 10 years earlier.) The instrument is now a polyphonic electric violin from Jensen that drives multi-channel audio analysis software and embedded wireless bow hardware technology. It aims to give extra power and finesse to a virtuosic violinist (i.e., Joshua Bell, Cora Venus Lunny.) It allows for quick, intuitive, and creative results. Although its interface is identical to a standard violin, the sound output is very different, and creatively controllable. This new Hyperviolin was designed to respond more closely, organically, and intuitively to the player’s music, and to be fully autonomous, allowing for improvisation. It was also the ideal test platform for my Master’s research on real-time timbre transformation and morphing.”
