Not sure if this is really “Entertainment and Pop Culture” but it’s the closest identity I can think of given the options.

Looks like a worthy project, in case anyone might be interested.

I’m a contributor, not one of the people running it.

Basically, it a fundraiser to build some nifty hexagonal-keyboard MIDI controllers. It’s a similar layout to what you might see on a button accordian, but more flexible. There’s a good description of the keyboard design on the indiegogo promotional page.

That looks really cool. I’d love to hear what some good composers and musicians could do with that instrument.
