Kosmolyre is related both to the electric slide guitar (played with a slide and plectrum) and the harp (because of the many strings on each side). The Kosmolyre is a stringed microtonal instrument with four side which are all tuned differently. The instrument can be turned easily during performance by means of the wheels at either end of the playing board, to expose the different sides to the player.
