What is a Laser Harp…? The laser harp is a musical instrument made of light. A fan of beams shoots up from the floor into the night sky. The performer can create music by placing their hands in the beams.
The harp does not produce any sound by itself, but creates MIDI data that can be connected to any modern synthesizer.
The laser harp concept was invented by Bernard Szajner and used extensively by Jean-Michel Jarre, and more recently Little Boots.
A few years ago he posted a short clip of the laser harp he developed, solely to show friends back in the UK.
