Ever hear of a musical instrument called a Matryomin? Its invention dates to the 1920s when Masami Takeuchi became a Theremin master while living in Russia. He took the Theremin back to Japan where he spent years teaching its mysteries to others. To make things a little more interesting, he figured out a way to install Theremin antennas inside some matryoshka, those famous Russian nesting dolls. There’s your Matryomin.
Here are 167 of those things playing Beethoven’s Ninth. I guess someone has to do it. (Via Jim and Holy Kaw)
