This is a sneak preview of the Eowave Metallic Resonator prototype, inspired by the Martenot Métallique.
In the video, it is demonstrated with the Eowave Persephone Mark II.
Maurice Martenot created an early electronic instrument, the ondes Martenot, that sounded similar to a theremin, but was controlled by a unique keyboard that allowed for traditional keyboard playing and also expressive pitch glides that the theremin is known for.
Martenot expanded the sonic capabilities of his instrument by running it through unique resonating speakers. These speakers add their own resonances and coloration to the sound, so they are part of the ‘sound’ of the instrument.
