Yamaha, Futuresonic & Sequence presents:

The Manchester Launch of the Yamaha TENORI-ON


Mint Lounge, Oldham Street, Manchester

20.00 - 00.00




A short presentation and discussion with the inventor & designer behind this unique instrument: Toshio Iwai


With live performances from:


Robert Lippok (Domino)

Secondo (Dreck Records)

Graham Massey (808 State/Toolshed)



The TENORI-ON is a unique 16 x 16 LED button matrix performance instrument with a stunning visual display. For Djs and producers it is a unique performance tool enabling them to perform using MIDI and load the TENORI-ON with samples to jam and improvise within their set BPM’s.


By operating and interacting with the LED buttons and the light they produce you gain access to the TENORI-ON’s numerous performance capabilities. The TENORI-ON provides six different performance and sound/light modes for broad performance versatility and these modes can be combined and used simultaneously for rich, complex musical expression.


Conceived by leading Japanese media artist Toshio Iwai in 2001 and following five years of intensive development the TENORI-ON has been showcased at major arts festivals and media arts festivals including Sonar (Spain), Futuresonic (U.K.), Ars Electronica (Austria), SIGGRAPH (U.S.) as well as being road tested by cutting edge artists including Kraftwerk, Matthew Herbert, Mouse on Mars and Tortoise.
