Introducing Bjork's Gameleste, a bespoke Gamelan Celeste Hybrid

The epic Bjork Biophilia experience includes a live show, studio album, a new web site, a documentary, and a collection of iPad apps. 

Part of the Biophilia project sees Bjork commissioning the creation of new instruments, including the Gameleste. Part Gamelan, part Celeste, it’s the first of its kind. The mutant instrument can be played remotely via a MIDI keyboard. Watch the making-of below.
