The Organelle is an extremely fascinating and unabashedly peculiar musical instrument that is brought to you from the studios and tinkerers of the Brooklyn-based worship of Critter & Guitari. This particular box is based on the colorful wood-and-metal design that Critter & Guitari is known for. The instrument is completely programmable, so you can set it up in such a way that its beautiful lacquered keys make any sound that you want it to make.

You could label the Organelle as a musical instrument or indeed a computer for playing music, because it is powered by an RM Cortex A9 processor that is powered by Linux. It supports patches written for the Pure Data open source music programming environment.

This device treads the fine line between musical instrument and computer, and opens up a whole variety of possibilities.
