Meet a recording engineer turned neuroscientist and a gifted composer who inspired Oliver Sacks to investigate and write about music and our brains.

Hans Reichel's invention, the Daxophone
The Daxophone is a somewhat comical sounding instrument of the friction idiophone category invented by Hans Reichel. It consists of a thin wooden blade fixed in a wooden block, which is played by bowing or by being struck or plucked. The vibrations are amplified by contact mics. A wide range of voice-like timbres can be produced, either as fixed pitches on the fretted side of the block, or in a more fluid glissando style on the smooth side.
