The Hydraphon by Nils Hoffman

The Hydraphon is a multiplayer-instrument for 4 - 8 players. The number of "heads" on the "hydra" and its musical content are variable: It can reach from a maximum of eight "heads" to only four - and the musical content may vary from electronic to classical music or anything in-between. So it´s more like a platform, that can quickly be adapted to different situations and events. Each player operates one "head" of the hydraphon. Each "head" is loaded with 120 Audio-Loops or Samples, that can easily be modified by each player with individual effects. This results in an astronomic amount of combinations. VIDEO:
