Turn a Baguette into a Theremin #MusicMonday

From Instructables user AphexHenry:

The musical baguette work like a Theremin and a percussion instrument but can be connected to any virtual instruments!
It can be used to control an instrument or some parameters of this instrument, like the filters or whatever.

I won’t go deeply into the mechanism of the instrument because I am not a specialist and you will find a lot of docs on the internet.
But to make it simple, it use an antenna which produce a frequency and your body will change this frequency. What you get is the difference between the original frequency and the current one. This difference vary with the distance so you can use you hands without touching the instrument to control anything.
