What are the special features of TENORI-ON?

Last Update: 11/11/2011

TENORI-ON is a 21st-century interface for music, developed in a collaboration between media artist Toshio Iwai and Yamaha Corporation. The instrument uses a panel of 16 x 16 LED buttons as an interface, so that even those with no knowledge of music can play it using sight and intuition.

TENORI-ON offers six types of program for the use of these buttons, and the light and sound they produce (Score / Random / Draw / Bounce / Push / Solo). These programs are called "performance modes" (or more simply "modes.") TENORI-ON allows the player to use multiple performance modes simultaneously, allowing layering of sounds and a wealth of musical expression.
