Stevie Wonder discovers new musical instrument, harpejji, at Winter NAMM 2012

While Tim Meeks was developing his musical invention, the harpejji, in his basement several years ago, he must not have imagined that one day Stevie Wonder would want one. Imagine the feeling he had when someone tapped on his shoulder at Winer NAMM 2012 and whispered, "Stevie Wonder is coming to see the harpejji." This video captures the moments that followed. Since the demo, Stevie has received his harpejji k24 and hopes to master it over time.
