Matryomin – the strangest musical instrument in the world?


The Matryomin is a theremin electronic musical instrument built into one of those Russian dolls called Matrioshka. It’s Japanese built – where else indeed? – has a five octave range and is just about the weirdest thing ever to see and hear. Watch this amazing video of a full Matryomin orchestra and dare to disagree. Priced from around $400.00.


 Matryomin is the unique, original erectronic musical instrument invented by Masami Takeuchi in 1999. It is a type of theremin – oldest electro-musical instrument invented in Russia – shaped Russian traditional wooden doll, Matrioshka. It hold form of Matrioshka perfectly, moreover, performing five octaves range. The distance of 1 octave at Low-Middle range is equal to Etherwavetheremin of Moog Music Inc. If you have acquired the basic technique to play theremin by Etherwavetheremin, you can enjoy playing Matryomin by same way.
