Introducing Orpheus

An artisanal musical instrument that releases ethereal sounds using friction

Based on the works of inventor Ernst Chladni and the renowned Baschet brothers
Orpheus follows the tradition of friction activated instruments to challenge new sonic explorations.
The instrument consists of a set of metal bars with paired acoustical resonators and threaded rods, all arranged on a wooden steady base.
Aluminium as our medium of choice guarantees long sustain and a smooth focused tone,
where resonating tubes enhance vigorously its sonic radiation.
Lastly, playing rods serve to excite initially the vibration when rubbed with wet fingers.
This blend ends up in a unique sensory experience.
