Producing music in the air 😎

The instrument's controlling section usually consists of two metal antennas that sense the relative position of the thereminist's hands and control oscillators for frequency with one hand, and amplitude (volume) with the other. The electric signals from... See More

The Floppotron is a musical instrument created by Polish engineer Paweł Zadrożniak.

It is made of a synchronized array of obsolete computer hardware programmed to play tunes. The current Floppotron 2.0 build sports 64 floppy drives, 8 hard drives, and a pair of flatbed scanners. The net effect is of a robot orchestra.

Are you a fan of Fur Elise?

Interesting comment by viewers:
Level 1: Fur Elise
Level 2: This is for Elise
Level 3: This piece is for my friend Elise
Level 4: This composition is for a friend I call Elise
Level 5: This musical composition for the piano is made for a homo sapiens organism with possessing forty-six X chromosomes whose first name in her birth certificate is “Elise”.

"Gloomy Sunday," also known as the "Hungarian Suicide Song", is a song composed by Hungarian pianist and composer Rezső Seress and published in 1933.

"Gloomy Sunday," also known as the "Hungarian Suicide Song", is a song composed by Hungarian pianist and composer Rezső Seress and published in 1933. The original lyrics were titled Vége a világnak (The world is ending) and were about despair caused by war, and ending in a quiet prayer about the people's sins.

Stories about people committed suicide after listening to this song is said to be an urban legend. But, the story behind this song is really sad. During WW2 the Nazis forced the composer, and his mother into a concentration camp. Rezső survived it but his mother died in it. After that he worked in Hungary at some theaters and restaurants but lived. Later he was having trouble writing more songs and his fame began to decline, so he fell into depression. Seress complained that the success of "Gloomy Sunday" increased his unhappiness, because he knew he would never be able to write a second hit. He commited suicide in 1968 by jumping out of a window, survived that but later strangeled himself in the hospital.

Given just the first two middle notes, the audience instinctively and almost unanimously figured out the others and expanded the scale along the pentatonic line. Amazing!
