What is Audanika?
Audanika is a new digital musical instrument that is especially
suited for learning the basics of making music together.
Audanika's patented tone system visualizes relationships of
tones, chords and keys in the form of colors, fields and symbols.
The resulting visual language makes it possible to teach even children
basics of composition and improvisation.
