Telesen

A small CRT-TV is reincarnated to something like a Japanese traditional three stringed instrument, sanshin. While sanshin is a variant of san-sen which literally means three strings, Telesen has multiple, more than three strings, strings being metaphors of stripes on the screen. Telesen produces sound when a player catches static electricity emitted from the CRT-TV screen by a conductive plectrum. The pitch can be changed by changing the number of stripes on the screen and the wavelength using the controller on the neck of Telesen. A bard with Telesen passes down the story of the rise and fall of analogue broadcasting from generation to generation!
This is not a Japanese Shamisen, but a Teletanese Telesen.
