It all started with a comment from a creator on Youtube: "Can I play any instrument with RISE 2?"
Seaboard specialist Heen Wai took this question as a challenge. Could RISE 2 trade licks, improvise melodies, and jam with a whole band of talented players?
The ensemble includes Ukrainian bassist, singer/songwriter Anastasia Pshokina, British jazz musician and Sax player Chaz Keiderling, groovy-guitarist Giacomo Turra, Cuban cellist Ismael Ariel Guerrero Bombut, ROLI’s own CMO and talented violinist Sophie Solomon, Polish flutist Antonina Styczen, internationally renowned trumpet star Quentin Collins, versatile composer/keyboardist Gerald Peter, and session drummer and Wharf bandmember Louis Cowling.
Watch the video above to see Seaboard RISE 2 take center stage. Replicating the sounds from each player, Heen uses the power of 5D expression to create jazzy build-ups, guitar solos, and string crescendos to showcase once and for all — any instrument is possible.
