本設計將東方傳統樂器「月琴」改造為一系列的新型樂器。改善月琴響度較低的缺點,透過結構上的改變與拾音器的安裝將其電聲化,可在較大的場域中演奏、搭配效果器來增加音色豐富性。此外,嘗試使用不同材種,測試這些種類的木材是否對於音色有所影響,並提高外觀辨識度。本次設計和以往的月琴形式不大相同,期盼能帶來一股新氣象,也為台灣唸歌文化注入全新活力與滿滿祝福。 - We transform the traditional instrument “Yueqin” to a series of brand new instruments. Through changing the composition and installing the pickup to make them electronic and be louder. Therefore, they can be played in a bigger range and be rich-timbre with effects pedals.
