Weird and Wonderful Instruments

YaybaharMost of us will sit in a studio for hours trying to find sounds that’ll simulate something like this. Well as Görkem ?en seems to think, if you’re going to spend hours synthesizing sounds like this, you may as well create your very own acoustic instrument.

This is an electric-free, totally acoustic instrument designed by Görkem Sen. The vibrations from the strings are transmitted via the coiled springs to the frame drums. These vibrations are turned into sound by the membranes which echo back and forth on the coiled springs. This results in an unique listening experience with hypnotic surround sound.

What you hear in this performance is captured in real time without any additional effects and with no post audio processing.

May we present the Yaybahar…
