Speed Playing The Stylophone

US Ingenious method for rapid retriggers      13/03/22

The Stylophone from Dubreq has been around since the 1970s, featuring a stylus and touch plate to trigger sounds.

In the video he plays Pulp Fiction's 'Misirlou' theme song, and I fancy the Lost In Space Theme by Apollo 440 would also be ripe for reproduction.

A video of his from a few months back garnered some serious views:
