The theremin.

Ah yes - the theremin.  Played by a a thereminister, or perhaps a theremaniac.
A bit of trivia - it is the only instrument that is played without being touched.
And, invented by a Russian cellist

Well, keep the topic alive, its living more then i ever hoped for..

can't believe someone plays these things, and well.  Reputedly, it is hard to do.

Beautiful! Besides the incredible technique, the expression (dynamics, rubato, trills, vibrato, etc) exhibits an artistic control of the instrument.

Deeds Memorial Tower - Carillon Park in Dayton, Ohio.  Height is 151 feet (46m).  There are 57 bells. There is a public concert every Sunday during the months of June, July, and August. Sing it!

I only had time to watch this one.  It is funnnnnnnnnyyy!   This guy is crazy!  He must be very lonely, so he finds a way of enjoying himself.   Pant

Too bad he can't make any money off of his instrument making talent.  Ends up rotting or growing mold.  :D

Anyways, here is the page with all of his videos! He has a lot more vegetable instruments here!

You can be in Tokyo or Alberta at four in the morning in your hotel and you can still practice if you feel like it. A trombone cannot do that at four in the morning.

I believe that they are tuned to what is commonly known as Continental Compressed Band Pitch.

how about an instrument which was accused of making those who played it insane and that playing it evoke the spirits of the dead:

Ben Franklin's armonica  Eeek! Eeek!

The tromboon, from PDQ Bach (aka Peter Schikele),

http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tromboon.jpg

along with some of his other instruments (sorry couldn't find pics of them) like the double-reed slide music stand, the windbreaker (which doesn't resemble a jacket), the hardart, the lasso d'amore, and the tuba mirum.
