TENORI-ON is electronic musical instrument created by Toshio Iwai. It consists of sixteen-by-sixteen grid of LED switches and makes various sounds by touching them. Because it is designed to play intuitively, people who even don’t have any knowledge about music can play it and compose songs. This design takes over the characteristics of keyboard instruments in terms of way to create sounds; which is striking the keys or switches. However, TENORI-ON is not just digital piano, but totally new musical instruments in the 21st century which can provide new experience.
