I expect that many of you got the same email about the TENORI-ON launch. For those who didn’t, here’s the details …

“Futuresonic is to co-present the worldwide launch of the TENORI-ON by Toshio Iwai and Yamaha.

TENORI-ON is a unique AV instrument – a cross between intuitive performance instrument and art object. Toshio Iwai’s TENORI-ON show at Futuresonic 2006 was an undisputed highlight of the festival, and the positive audience response in the UK led Yahama to stage the worldwide launch in London and Manchester. The TENORI-ON has been showcased and refined at major music events and media art festivals; Sonar (Spain), Futuresonic (UK), Ars Electronica (Austria), SIGGRAPH (USA) and Art Futura (Spain), with the first fully realised live show produced by Futuresonic in Manchester as a part of Futuresonic 2006. Toshio Iwai will be joined by Robert Lippok, Capracara and Secondo on 4th September at Phonica in London and by Robert Lippok, Secondo and Graham Massey on 5th September at Mint Lounge in Manchester.
