The Yabahar – A New Acoustic Instrument That Creates Sounds like a Spiritual Digital Synthesizer

Posted by

This is an acoustic instrument with no electricity or anything… Natural source coded materials which are membrane, coiled spring and string working together. Maybe we can say that this is a new bridge system between string and resonant body. But generally this is a new design and emit obviously natural vibrations and gives new playing abilities. Very important that it has totally a unique live listening experience!!

A New Acoustic Instrument That Creates Sounds like a Digital Synthesizer sound instruments

The Yabahar is a new acoustic instrument designed by Istanbul-based musician Görkem Şen that emits music right out of a retro sci-fi movie, a remarkable feat considering there isn’t a bit of electricity involved. The Yabahar can be played in a variety of different ways using mallets or with a bow, relying on a combination of two drum-like membranes, long springs, and a tall fretted neck to create music. Like any instrument, it’s capable of producing sounds that run the gamut from “beautiful music” to “noise.” Give it a listen! (via The Creators Project)
