Teenage Engineering Introduces an International Choir of Wooden Dolls

Capable of serenading you with pre-programmed songs or connecting to your MIDI keyboard.

Known for their revolutionary OP-1, Teenage Engineering’s latest product is a fun bit of innovative decor. With inspiration from characters such as the Russian Matryoshka and Carlo Collodi’s Pinocchio, the company created one of the most fascinating musical tech products of the year with this wooden choir.

The eight-piece ensemble can sing built-in songs, as well as connect to any Bluetooth MIDI keyboard for your own compositions. Each member has their own distinct vocal range and voice and is able to perform solo or as an ensemble.

“This choir is a celebration of over 10 years together as a group of friends exploring design, technology, and sound. Without the Absolut choir there would be no OP-1, no pocket operators, speakers, or synths. there wouldn’t even be a company named teenage engineering,” writes Teenage Engineering founder Jesper Kouthoofd.

Teenage Engineering handcrafts each doll from individually-polished solid beech with removable speaker modules on the inside. Further, the simplicity extends from design to functionality. Users can gently tap the doll on the head to play or pause, and tilt the figure left or right to adjust the volume. According to Teenage Engineering, you can also gently smack the dolls to turn them off when it gets annoying.

Have a closer look at the Teenage Engineering Choir in the gallery above, or hear it in action in the video below! The Choir is available now online for $249 USD each.
