Make: Tokyo Meeting 手作り電子楽器「ウダー」 - 01

"2008年4月20日(日)「Make: Tokyo Meeting」にて、宇多さんの演奏"
"April 20, 2008 (Sun) "Make: Tokyo Meeting" at Uta's play"

You can find more vids in the thumbnails that come up after the video ends.

Update via Jafafa Hots in the comments:
"Found a little more info which I am swiping word for word from a poster on another message board:

'Found out a little more about this sweet music maker... The Uda is an ELECTRONIC instrument that is played with both hands by pushing down pieces of rope that correspond to certain notes. Each twist of the rope represents an octave, and each segment of the rope represents a different note. The resulting data is output as MIDI, and although it could technically be used with any MIDI sound, Uda-san (Uda is also the name of the person who made this instrument) chooses to stick with the flute-like textures. So basically its a funny shaped keyboard... i like it though!'"

  3. I like this, but then again I seem to like most "alternate" controllers. I think I like the karlax twisty one more, though: http://www.dafact.com/products/karlax/overview
