Awesome! Thanks for posting.
Excellent sound but that keyboard looks like it could slice off your fingers if you’re not careful.
I kept thinking, “turn a knob! turn a knob!” Synthesizers should come standard with both ribbon controllers and keyboards.

The trautonium was used to make bird sounds for the Alfred Hitchcock film The Birds.
