The Empire Strikes a Chord

Let’s face it, taking over the universe or shooting womp rats in your T-16 back home should be as easy as making music with this Chewbacca, Darth Vader and the Death Star bluetooth musical instrument/midi controller collection. Actually these designs by Benjamin Males are called “The Singer, The Drummer and The Dreamer” but which is which? I like my Star Wars naming system better. He might actually sell some this way (George Lucas’ army of lawyers be damned). And now for some boring details:

The Singer has five keys and is “influenced by classical instruments such as the Violin…and is created from solid Cherry wood. It is made using 5 Axis CNCing, which enables a smooth spiral to be ‘carved’ into the cherry.”

The Drummer, “when turned the right side up, loops of drum-beats are initiated, creating rhythm in the musical composition. Influenced by African drums such as the Djembe, the Drummer can also produce a secondary percussive sound, achieved by tapping the flat section on the top.”

The Dreamer “produces 3 sounds depending on its orientation and when placed in it’s rest position, it remains silent.”

OK, back to the fun part. Did anyone see Star Wars? Yeah, me too… it was awesome!

    Great post. 😀 I like the Star Wars interpretation.

    There are plenty of musical interfaces (sound generation / control) out there, seems like everyone is giving it a go. The problem usually is that they are either not intuitive enough or are too limited / limiting. A Dreamer producing only three different sounds? More like a recurring nightmare.
