What is a Laser Harp?
A laser harp is an electronic musical instrument consisting of several laser beams to be blocked, in analogy with the plucking of the strings of a harp, in order to produce sounds.
It was popularized by Jean Michel Jarre, and has been a high profile feature of almost all his concerts since 1981. It has subsequently been used in a number of different designs, including a MIDI version invented by Philippe Guerre.
