“Klackový klávesy [Branch keyboard]: The concept of keyboard from wooden sticks was mentioned by a pioneer of hand made instruments from Czech republic Standa Filip as his first electronic keyboard instrument built in 1976. As many others, this instrument was lost or Standa gave it to somebody. Anyway, he doesn’t remember now who was it. Standuino team remade this thought and created functional imaginative replica of such keyboard instrument. The use of rough wood is characteristic for the poetics of the Standa’s musical instruments. Now we play concerts on it connected to a fraAngelico synthesizer which is another handmade invention of us.”
