Phanion / electroacoustic instrument


Phanion holds the advantages of acoustic and electronic musical instruments. The sound is created electronically by two exciters, which vibrate the body of the instrument.
The combination of two high-quality materials creates a unique sound character along with an independent design vocabulary.
The musician plays the Phanion with direct body contact which helps to create a close link between instrument and player.
The musical parameters like melody, harmony, rhythm, timbre and dynamic can be controlled by the sensitive keypad and a touch-controlled slider. This sophisticated operating concept creates a tremendous musical expressiveness
