Got My Radio Zither!!

Radio Zither

So what is it?
This is what Peter Blasser, the designer/builder has to say:

RadioZither is wireless technology, in marriage with a fine wooden casket carved from Baltimore City logs. Modeled after the pan-Asian tradition of plank zithers (guqin, gayageum, koto), its form reflects upon ancient heritages. Its function is to transcend traditions through radio, to inspire global thinking physically as well as ethereally.  This instrument sonifies plucks as well as movements between plucks, it is played / meta-played.”

I own prototype #2.
It’s carved out of one frigging piece of wood, and it’s five and a half feet!

Now the photos.
