[whoa... thought I had a comment here, I must be getting senile !!}
This is real amazing stuff, this video... and Elaine's instruments are truly fascinating not too mention her music and performance.
I'm going to have to check that out some more....
It's funny - I actually thought that was some kind of modified Indian or Turkish stringed instrument set up for midi, you know - those instruments with the movable frets.
Now there's something worth exploring !!
