Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 by 167 theremin nesting dolls

Posted on 23 Nov 2016


The theremin instrument was invented by Léon Theremin in 1920. The sound is like that of the Tannerin, an electrotheremin which appeared in The Beach Boys hit Good Vibrations. In the musical performance below, the performers are playing an invention of Masami Takeuchi.  Takeuchi placed the frequency antenna of a theremin inside a Russian nesting doll, creating a cute instrument called a Matryomin.
