Hundreds of people are beavering away, hoping to create their own game-changing instrument – but most won’t sell a single one. Will any change the future of music?
Subhraag Singh’s house is down a hill from a bakery in a quiet suburb of Stuttgart, where everyone’s garden is neatly kept. If someone turned their music up too loud, you imagine the neighbourhood watch would give them a ticking off. It doesn’t look like the home of the future of music. But propped up in Singh’s study is an instrument he claims will “change the way music functions”. He made it in his basement and it is called the Infinitone.
On his website, he is even more enthusiastic. The Infinitone is “the saxophone of the future”, he writes – the first instrument capable of opening “infinite musical universes”. “The status quo in music from this point forward shall be obliterated!” Music will “never be the same again”.
