Ahh... so there are special "normally closed" switches! That I didn't
know. But I would still need to add four more switches (since only one
finger tip fits on that switch) and add a special "enable/disable
switch circuit" switch (since its default mode is to shut off audio).

I'm looking for a controller that meets these three criteria:
1) big enough for finger drumming with five finger tips.
2) defalut mode of switch has to be to silence the signal.
3) the shall let through audio for exactly the time being touched.
