By combining a theremin, the legendary music instrument invented by Leon Theremin back in 1920 with a Russian Matryoshka doll you get a so called Matryomin. Invented by Japanese theremin player Masami Takeuchi back in year 2000 the new music instrument quickly became the new cult object. 4’000 copies were sold in Japan (japantrendshop) and made a new Guinness World Record with the biggest theremin music concert!
Like the original theremin, the instrument is played without actually being touched. An electric antenna is hidden inside the doll and gives the impression that the doll is singing when played by approaching the hand.
