UDAR: The Next-Generation Electronic Musical Instrument

2015 INNO-vation Disruptive Challenger

Udar is an electronic musical instrument that has a simple interface and combines step-less pitch like a violin and chord performance like a piano. You can play any temperament from Western music to folk music. A practical-grade Udar has already been completed, but the production cost is high and this is a major hindrance to the development. In this project, in order to reduce costs and improve performance, we will develop the electronic musical instrument Udar whose format has been greatly changed. If Udar spreads, it can be expected to contribute to the fusion of Western music and other music and to the creation of completely new music.

Michinobu Uda

Freelance Engineer/Udarist

Born in Osaka, 1981, Michinobu Uda is the developer of Udar and an avid "Udarist." After enrolling at the University of Electro-Communications, Uda began to learn classical guitar. At this time, questions about standard tuning began to arise, "isn't there a better tuning," and "what is CDEFGAB anyway?" This spawned the idea of Udar, an instrument to solve these questions he pondered. Since then, he has been nonstop developing Udar and is currently in development for version 6.0.x which aims to achieve the initial goals of ver. 5.x. YouTube
