This is an amplified resonating box of extra strings, like on
a viola d'amore, but that stands alone, so that you can tune
it differently and put it closer or further away from other
instrucments to see how it rings in accordance with them.
The strings could be tuned to keys going up the scale
thirds, alternating major and minor third intervals, and
with doubled strings, so that 24 strings could be used, two
for each key.
So the strings would be tuned to the 12 notes of the scale,
two strings for each note, so you could tune one to a low
note and the other to the octave up and then control the
volume of each, and optimize so that the box is as resonant
as possible. Hopefully all of the major and minor triads for
each of the keys will be represented in there, if you go up
the scale in major and minor thirds you would get for
instance, cmaj7, emin7, gmaj7, bmin7 etc eventually
covering all of the major and minor triads.
So if all the notes are resonating equally, it would be like
a blank state that the effects of really subtle things could
be written on.

||There are way more than 12 notes.
||Actually, there are only 12 notes. but they put on false moustaches and so on to give the illusion that there are more than 12.

||are there resonance tuned AFM tips yet? Kind of. [link]
