The "gravikord" is an electroacoustic instrument that is the brainchild of inventor and musical instrument builder, Bob Grawi. It is based on the traditional west African double harp known as the "kora". This piece of music is a short improvisation designed to show some of the things that the gravikord can do (things that are not possible on the kora). I had to cut my head off when I filmed myself playing the gravikord because I was singing the part that I would eventually play on the Moog Ethervox theremin and it looked a bit silly!
For more about the gravikord (tuning, construction etc.) Wikipedia has a very interesting and informative article at the following URL:
