Enner from Soma Laboratory is a synth that will feed off your emotions

Soma Laboratory has announced it plans on creating a new line of instruments that will react to your emotional state.

In a bid to explore new ways of sound extraction and self-expression, the Russian company has developed its first prototype.

Enner, a portmanteau of inner energy, is an instrument designed for “embracing the strengths and infinite possibilities of an emotional exchange.” Heavy stuff indeed.

Its sole purpose is to literally give you all the sounds at your fingertips and through exploration and experimentation, your body becomes part mixing console, envelope generator, filter and waveshaper.

Enner has been developed in collaboration with sounds artist SiSTOR and there is promise of more instruments along the same ethos to follow.

Keep an eye on the Soma Laboratory website for more info.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
