Many musicians have the desire to explore a non-traditional approach to their instruments; in particular the ability to interface with digital sound generators and samplers through the use of MIDI. In recognition of the need for a new type of bowed instrument for these musicians, ISI entered into a collaboration with award winning designer Ned Steinberger, a world leader in alternative instrument design. The result of this collaboration, the “NS” by Ithaca is a violin, distilled down into beautifully sleek minimalist lines, which opens up new possibilities in playing technique.
The instrument incorporates a combination of traditional and space age materials in it’s construction, a superb new tuning mechanism, and is designed to be fitted with the current state of the art MIDI interface. Forward looking in it’s design & functionality, the NS by Ithaca provides electronic musicians with a new tool for experimentation.
