The structure of this strange synth is simple: 16 discrete sawtooth OSCs each sound at their own pitch. It doesn't even have volume.
The 16 oscillators are arranged in a 4x4 matrix, and the pitch of each OSC is determined by the relationship between the row and column POTs and the large petal-shaped master pitch in the center.

LED brightness indicates the pitch of each OSC
Each OSC is "chained" to each other by matrix connections and cannot be individually tuned or muted.

The player must control the instruments, which fluctuate slightly and behave freely depending on the temperature, etc., and search for the point that will make them resonate beautifully.
As we struggle in the midst of constraints and search for the point of forced harmony, we can come across unfamiliar, beautiful chords and perfect balance that suddenly appears."
