The Swedish Harp Bass

Joel Illerhag invented a new instrument that he finished in June 2019. It contains an additional 39 sympathetic strings + electromagnets that can be controlled via a midi interface.
 
The electromagnets can be controlled external via audio, midi and motion sensors.The project includes 3D-design, electronics, music and instrument-building in carbon fiber.Joel wants to be in front of a new musical expression that opens up new musical shapes and ways of thinking compositions while pursuing his original mission of the music: speaking to the hearts of people.
