Waste is influencing the world. It is estimated that at least 3.5 million tons of solid waste are produced every day and they are placed massively and randomly nearly everywhere without disposal, threatening the environment.
Sustainable modular piano is designed for sustainability. Its keyboard is modularized, consisted of waste material such as metal, plastic, foam waste,etc.
Each waste material has different timbres and users can build them into a keyboard as they wish, transforming the pollutant into beautiful music, which can offer fun to people and also make them realize: ”Sustainability makes beauty”.
