We saw this unusual intrument tuecked away in a small booth in Hall 5.1. Its the brainchild of a bunch of french boffins - ranging from mathematicians to computer scientists and hardware designers who've gainde support fro IRCAM and many other French institutions to develop the Dualo.

It reminds you of an accordian to a degree, though the hex layout keyboard and on-board sound engine powered by "microprocessor" creates a range of accoustic and electro mechanical sounds for internal jamming and playing.

Additionally, Dualo can be configured to work as a MIDI controller with USB and MIDI connections.

I'll let Jules Hotrique explain via the video. The Dualo costs around €1000 and will be available soon.
