POLYPHONIC SYMPHONIA

 

The idea of a polyphonic keyboard on wheel instruments derives from my studies about 12th century Organistrum.

The three strings are tuned to the same pitch (C),  eight tangents being distributed among them: two on the first string, three on the middle one and  three on the third.

Thus it is possible to play  not only a melody  accompanied by  drones, but  some double stops (fourths and thirds) too.

 

I introduce you SONYA, the polyphonic symphonia.
