Welcome ☆

I'm Sami Elu, musician in Tokyo making original instruments, beats, melodies, and song-scapes.
My primary focus is on stringed keyboard instruments, notably the "chopstick piano" (chopstichord) and "ear pick piano" (pixiechord).  Over time the design has become more refined, but I want to take it up a notch and make more beautiful, easily playable instruments.  The process of building is difficult and time-consuming, and I can't get into the workshop as often as I'd like.  Donations would change that in a big way.  The new instruments are going to be amazing.  With your support.

With love and gratitude.

When I reach this goal I will buy a decent camera to use for making videos.
