A manufacturer of unique musical instruments is looking for local musicians to test out their latest instrument.
Therevox Custom Musical Instruments — from right here in Windsor — hand builds unique instruments inspired by the Ondes Martenot, one of the earliest electronic instruments invented in France in 1928.
“The ET-4 series of instruments are continuous pitch instruments allowing the musician to bend notes, add vibrato and be more expressive because there are no keys” says Therevox designer Mike Beauchamp “It’s sort of like controlling a 1970’s analog synthesizer with a slide guitar.”
While the ET-4 is an analog instrument, the latest version of the ET-4 can also send MIDI data over USB allowing musicians to control software instruments. Therevox is looking for musicians from the Windsor/Detroit area that are interested in testing and experimenting with this new digital interface.
“We’re looking for musicians that know their software, understand MIDI and also play instruments. The genre of music isn’t important – surprise us” explains Beauchamp. The Therevox ET-4 can recently be heard on “Images Du Futur” by Suuns and “Until In Excess, Imperceptible UFO” by The Besnard Lakes and the soundtrack to the Italian film “White Shoe”.
