Get in on these mix and match magical electronic musical instruments

Here’s some breaking news: Portland loves it some Kickstarter. Oh wait. That’s pretty obvious. But I’ve got to say, the way folks are using the service—and the amazing stuff they’re building—is a constant source of inspiration and awe. Take for example one of the latest successful projects, Molecule Synth.

[HTML1]

The MOLECULE SYNTH is a unique, utterly new kind of musical instrument. It offers the elemental components of a traditional keyboard synthesizer — a speaker & amp, a sound generator, and a pitch controller — but presents those elements as pieces that you arrange (and rearrange!) in various combinations to create your own musical device. The MOLECULE SYNTH is designed to be intuitive to use: each of its hexagonal pieces is color-coded to indicate what that piece is and does, and each piece is marked to show how it connects to other pieces. With these building blocks, you choose how to configure your instrument, and, later, you can move the pieces and configure an entirely new instrument!

Sound interesting? There’s still time to join in on this project. It’s already guaranteed to be funded. Just visit, Molecule Synth on Kickstarter.
