Beethoven's Ode to Joy Played With 167 Theremins Placed Inside Matryoshka Dolls in Japan

["straight" and jazz.]

Back in 2011, in Tokyo, 167 musicians performed some classic Beethoven with the "Matryomin," a new-fangled instrument that lodges a theremin inside a matryoshka. A matryoshka, of course, is one of those Russian nested dolls where you find wooden dolls of decreasing size placed one inside the other. As for the theremin, it's a century-old electronic musical instrument that requires no physical contact from the player. You can watch its inventor, Leon Theremin, give it a demo in the vintage video below. Or via these links you can see the Matryomin Ensemble performing versions of Amazing Grace and Memory of Russia. Enjoy.

I found the vintage video of the demo fascinating.
