I’ve had some time to play with the SOMA Terra and I can say it’s a truly unique instrument. Firstly it sounds great but I’m starting to recognise that the best thing about Terra is the way that it invites me to physically interact with the instrument to make music. Something that I think is a core SOMA philosophy. The velocity and pressure sensitive sensors allow such a huge range of expression and are very playable in a really intuitive way. It continues to delight and surprise me and I look forward to performing and recording with it for a long time to come.


Since TERRA has arrived, I haven’t stopped playing with it… TERRA has gone  way beyond my highest expectations for this genius instrument. The connection with the nervous system is so complete and the complexity of the timbres… wow!! Truly exquisite!! This instrument demands that one discovers its endless subtleties and sophistication through an interface so easily explored while also being beautiful and sensuous. TERRA is a giant among the rest. Congratulations on making such a truly unique and exciting instrument!

An Immersive Journey after several months of use and diligent reading of the 63-page manual, one becomes familiar with TERRA, appreciating its extraordinary musicality more and more each day, conducive to a form of sonic meditation. One can truly speak of a new lutherie with this type of instrument that creates a bridge between technology and nature. And for that, thanks to Vlad Kreimer and SOMA Laboratory!

For many years – and I have made this point before about tech being built by men, mainly used by men and we haven’t seen women building tech – but when I saw TERRA I thought, wow this is it, finally a union combing both logic and intuition / focus and fluidity / drive and creativity…..feels masculine and feminine at the same time – this is VERY inspiring!


My Terra has totally sucked me in. I’ve crossed the event horizon, been spaghettified, and become one with the singularity.
