Keyboard Landscaper is a musical and visual toy. For two minutes, your keyboard turns into a tone matrix: an electronic musical instrument inspired by Japanese artists Toshio Iwai and Yu Nishibori's Tenori-on. In Keyboard Landscaper, your keyboard is a 5 by 8 grid made from your keys. Each key can be pressed to trigger sounds. The columns are associated to five different notes, while the rows allow to program eight beats in advance.
