Yuchi Onoue plays the handmade Ribbon Controller - Electric musical instruments.
This video is Improvisation of Ribbon Controller at my home studio in 2005.


This handmade electric musical instrument can change a oscillator pitch smoothly, depending on the place which you press down. Ribbon Controller was originally made as a kind of MOOG SYNTHESIZER's controller in late 60's. I made this following its example. And playing style is self-taught.

This ribbon controller hooked up to simple analogue oscillator. The frequency of the oscillator changes in the value of electric resistance. Electrically, This ribbon controller is just an electric variable resistance. Not a midi box.
