For centuries, numerous inventions have been made in the field of musical instrument building. Most of them have gone unnoticed, while only a small number have turned out to be interesting enough to gain popularity among musicians and music lovers. What are, then, the reasons for certain instruments to find their users and others to become obsolete?
This book presents a new musical instrument, Sormina, and its design process. In some respects, the instrument leans on a long tradition of musical instrument building, while in other points, it has made use of totally new, even audacious thinking. In the book, the author explains his choices in the light of historical facts, but also in that of his own experience as a musician and an artist.
