The Trichord is an electronic keyboard based upon a hexagonal organization of musical pitch.
US Patent # 6,392,131 B2



This instrument was awarded a US patent in 2002. Built entirely from scratch and by hand from 3 blocks of natural hardwood, cherry, walnut and maple. Even the electronics were custom designed and hand assembled. In 2001 I went on a 2 week concert tour of Japan playing the Trichord with an ensemble of percussionists led by Hiroshi Chu Okubo.
