Bringing the "Broom Guitar" to the World for Anyone to Play Like A Rock Star

2023 Disruptive Challenger, Tetsuto Takahashi

The theme of this work surrounds deciphering how to further connect people around the world to each other through the Broom Guitar, a musical cleaning instrument that combines sound and light to let anyone express themselves through performance arts.  At first glance, the device may seem like a simple broom, but the interior is equipped with numerous sensors that let the user create sounds just like a guitar. The device uses microcontrollers that employ algorithms based on music theory, allowing anyone to intuitively play, regardless of their previous experience with instruments. I was struggling with many hardships in life and found myself wishing to live as I did in middle school, pretending to play the guitar on a broom while chasing the dream of one day becoming a rock star. This led to the creation of the Broom Guitar. The Broom Guitar is designed to open people’s hearts, and I am convinced that it can be used to let people from all walks of life communicate through music, which is why I worked on developing a standalone model that anyone can play wherever they are. This will open the world up to a new type of musical non-verbal communication that transcends experience, nationality, and language.
