This week we have the Gesprächskonzert by Ondomo for you, a very nice overview and performance. The Ondomo is a unique instrument originally invented in France in the late 1920s. It was known under the name ‘Ondes-Martenot’ and invented by Maurice Martenot. Ondomo is the reincarnation of this instrument.
It features a timbre section that is played by the left hand, as well as the volume. The right hand either plays the keyboard with its physical capability for performing vibrato, or by sliding a metal ring worn on your finger in front of the keyboard. The position of the ring determines the pitch. This method of playing makes it possible to create continuous, sweeping sounds reminiscent of the sound of a Theremin.
The limited run of 100 instruments which inventor Naoyuki Omo has committed to build has already been depleted. But there are plans to build another batch. For more information please visit their website or subscribe to the official Ondomo Newsletter.
