I saw this online and was amazed by this crazy instrument.
Yaybahar is an electric-free, totally acoustic instrument designed by Gorkem Sen. The vibrations from the strings are transmitted via the coiled springs to the frame drums. These vibrations are turned into sound by the membranes which echo back and forth on the coiled springs. This results in an unique listening experience with an hypnotic surround sound.
What you hear in this performance is captured in realtime without any additional effects and with no post audio processing.
