Swedish Band Wintergatan shared a new video featuring two new custom electroacoustic instruments.
The instruments, created by Wintergatan’s Martin Molin, include:
- The Music Box – a electro-mechanical music box that uses a punched strip to sequence the notes; and
- The Modulin – a hybrid modular synthesizer violin.
The video captures a live performance, filmed in on take, using the two instruments.
The audio is available on Bandcamp:
Here’s a video documenting the build on the Music Box:
“I have named this instrument ‘The Modulin’ because i see it as a mix of a MODular syntheseiser and a vioLIN – MODULIN,” notes Molin. “We will film more videos to explain how it works. I am also building a version 2.0 of this Modulin for stability, it is very cobbled together at this stage and it has broken down on us on stage several times.”
