About Mirai instruments

I have created musical instruments with new value from scrap products.

Of course, particular about the tone, design, and function, but the point is that it can be easily fixed (= can be used for a long time) because it is made with simple technology.

Constraints

I have set up a number of “constraints”.

1) Use of materials and technologies with low environmental impact.

2) Donate 10% of profits.

3) I will share my discoveries.

Air Coke

A musical instrument that uses air pressure to tune a Coca-Cola plastic bottle.

It has a flower-like design and a clear tone that is different from both xylophone and xylophone.

Materials: plastic bottles, valves, bicycle wheel

PETphone

A musical instrument cut out of the bottom of a plastic bottle.

It has a lovely popping sound, colorful appearance, and a wide range of sound for its amazing lightness.

Materials: plastic bottles, bicycle wheel

Orcan

The organ is made of empty cans, so it is ”orcan”.

The unique connection system allows for the addition of a variety of flutes.

Materials: empty cans, straws, PVC pipes, balloons

Canon

A percussion instrument made from empty cans.

The length of the tube is changed by cutting off the mouthpiece and connecting it to a plastic bottle of the same thickness as the can.

The bottom part is covered with felt to soften the sound.

By holding an empty can with a scale in the hand as well and playing it, a sound with mysterious chords (overtones) is produced.

Materials: empty cans, plastic bottles

Ensembrella

A flute made of umbrella plastic as a reed.

In fact, it is not suitable for ensembles at all because the pitch oscillates violently.

Materials: umbrella, PVC pipe, hose

Dodompa

If you cut the bottom of a cylindrical plastic bottle, you can make a musical scale.

This is a parading instrument that can produce both rhythm and melody at the same time and is very light, so it is not too hard on the body.

Materials: buckets, blue sheets, plastic bottles
