Description

Orpheus is a 21st century modern interpretation of an instrument known as Euphone invented by Ernst Chladni back in 1790.
Cristal Baschet, by renowned Baschet brothers, was to follow in this family of instruments in the 50s.
Orpheus follows this 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.
Aluminum as a medium for the tone bars guarantees long sustain and a smooth focused tone,
where resonating tubes enhance vigorously its sonic radiation.
Playing rods serve to excite initially the vibration when rubbed with wet fingers.
This blend ends up in a unique sensory experience.
