DIY Ondes Martenot Controller Demo

This is the third video by Dana Countryman documenting the creating and use of his amazing synth DIY project – an Ondes Martenot.

The Ondes Martenot is a unique musical instrument invented in 1928 by Maurice Martenot and originally very similar in sound to the theremin.

In this video, I show the left-hand volume control, and give an overview of the entire system.

At the end, I play “Ave Maria” on the instrument, live in my studio.
