Even in the silent film era, when full orchestras would perform a score live as a movie flickered overhead, we have expected our movies to have sound. Yet we don’t have the same expectations of reading. Why not? Why shouldn’t a book, or even a comic book, have its own score? That’s the idea behind the Otowa, a charming device that merges a mechanical organ with a Japanese manga to create an adorably analog multimedia experience.
This sounds cool.
