The Triadex Muse was designed in Massachusetts at MIT and is credited with being the first digital sequencer.  It is set up as a grid with pitches and motifs that would be woven together in real time and played through an internal speaker.  Amazingly and simultaneously ahead and behind the times.  It often gives the impression that it is a robot trying to get an internship at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.  Well, if i was a robot i’d be trying to do that too!

Here’s a video of the beast in action from youtube:

It’s a great example of the Triadex because it is fairly musical and also has the accompanying light box and extention speaker.  If I had a Frank Lloyd Wright designed house back in the day i would totally have this soundscape set making futuristic background music all the time.

I really appreciate the design style too.  It’s layout is slightly science lab in nature but the triangular shape and wooden case make it look really sharp and futuristic.
