The Webclavier™ Virtual Musical Instrument
Nearly 40 years ago Sydney Alonso and I invented a musical instrument that revolutionized the music industry. Today we are on the edge of new technology that promises equally radical change - and that technology is HTML5 and the Web Audio API.
Frank Zappa spent the last 10 years of his life composing music on my instrument; for that I am honored. Artists of his generation spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on studio equipment to help them realize their musical ideas. When the Web Audio API goes mainstream later this year, every iPhone, every computer, even every web page, will have the power of the largest Synclavier® Digital Audio System ever built.
This fall I am planning a project to bring the historic and authentic sounds of Synclavier® II to a new Web Application called Webclavier. This project will be exciting and innovative, and I want to invite you to support the Webclavier by joining my Webclavier Crowdfund Campaign.

What is The Webclavier Virtual Musical Instrument?
Someday, webclavier.com may be a social site for FM Synthesis aficionados. Young enthusiasts could share and swap their favorite new FM Timbres; maybe even short Sequences. “Faceclavier”: why not, am I not allowed to think big?
Ok, maybe my imagination has gone wild. But then again, the Synclavier® was once just a dream and now it is part of the recorded history of musical instruments. If there is blame or credit, I'll take my share. Thanks for reading.
