    I once had almost an ounce of unobtanium.

    Trautonium?
    I was thinking, "Traumatized Euphonium".

    Why would anyone make a video of an antique musical instrument, and not show it being played?

    Why do that? Why record it? The noise was casual. Nothing distinctive.

    The Theremin is much more impressive, both in sound and function.

    One has to have a physical relationship with his instrument, in order to make it sing.

    Well alright then. Thanks bertus, that was pretty good.

    Reminded me of the wizard behind the curtain.

    Hola Bertus,

    First time I hear of it. I watched part of four different videos and the sound (most of it noise) was not pleasant at all. When I came to an improvisation I knew I had enough. I know it is (was) Sala, not the trautonium.

    I guess the author didn't like people viewing his concert from external websites, like this one.
