ROLI is a design-led music technology start-up based in Dalston, London. ROLI makes hardware and software products designed to increase the bandwidth of interaction between people and technology. The Seaboard is a radically new musical instrument that reimagines the piano keyboard as a soft, continuous surface. The Seaboard’s polyphonic pitch bend, vibrato and per-note dynamic changes are all available at your fingertips, marrying the intuitiveness of a traditional instrument with the versatility of digital technology. ROLI has brought together years of innovation in several disciplines to realise this powerful concept as an award-winning product.
At Sónar+D, ROLI will be showcasing the Seaboard GRAND with an exciting demo and performance and will be joined on stage by the internationally renowned electronic music producer Koreless. Koreless will show how he uses the Seaboard GRAND in his productions and give live examples of how it integrates into his set-up and workflow. There will also be the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the demo.
