Created by Japan’s CUBE Toy company and designed by the artists brothers Masamichi and Nobumichi Tosa of the Maywa Denki design firm, the Otamatone boasts one of the most unusual (yet adorable!) designs for a musical instrument to date. Inspired by the mysterious, uninhibited, and often unpredictable nature of the voice as an instrument, the Tosa brothers created the Otamatone, one of several other pieces in their collection of “Nonsense Machines Emade to celebrate and explore all the quirks and “magicness Eof the human voice. Joining a machine that reproduces laughter, one that barks like a dog, and other silly, whimsical, yet functional and inherently fascinating contraptions, the Otamatone is a fun, silly exploration of sound and music making.
