Appreciate you sharing these videos. History that modern synth users aren't often aware of! Great stuff.

Crazy how he makes it sound so natural and not synthetic. Like a one man orchestra.

I had the honour to meet Mr Sala in the early 90tees, when he presented it near to our university in NRW. I had an intensive talk to him and the possibilities of electronical music, MIDI and that all. It is so impressive what this instrument can do! The sounds were superb and still overcame most electronic synthesizers of that time! First some years later in the mid of the 90tees, VA-Synthesis gave as similar opportunities.

Very cool. Lovely mixture of progressive synth effects with traditional composition. I think it works.

Another hint for those who do not know about this instrument: It has been used to generate the birds' screams in Hitchcocks "the birds". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UxINIwHxR8s The inventors Oskar Sala, Friedrich Trauwein and the Composer Paul Hindemith have to be announced when it comes to the question who really invented electronical music and the point of time was 1930. This was even before Konrad Zuse developed the first computer!

Günter Bertholdt:
... met him before his concert. We talked about Paul Hindemith, Edgar Wallace, Alfred Hitchcock, the war, his problems and friends, who helped him constructing the trautonium. - He asked me, if i want to learn this instrument. Who wonders: I denied. - After Gerhard Schröder's KlangArt Festival laudation, who became later on Bundeskanzler of Germany, no more more sponsors for this congress could be found.

WOW!
So this is the instrument that gave birth to all the music we hear today.
I would not do what I do as a musician had not it been for Pioneers such as Friedrich Trautwein and Oskar Sala.
Respect due!

Revelation: Subharmonic Generator.
By electronic devision it produces four different subtones (= chord) from a single master tone, thus generating an eight-tone chord on both manuals. The subharmonic chord (basically minor scale) can be varied by its mutable frequency ratios, stored into three different presets and selected by foot-pedal during recitation. These one-finger subharmonic chords can sound in every pitch, even as glissandos, without changing their intervals.

Oh my God..........

Even today, in the times of modulars with A LOT OF diferrent modules, sounds and technologies --- this old video just exploded my brain....

ABSOLUTELY GENIUS!
ABSOLUTELY!!!
JUST IDEALLY - ALL, composition, playing, thoughts, and ESPECIALLY SOUNDS!....

Now the sound of all modern analog "synths" like Chinese toys for little children.....

This is just a GIANT OF REAL ANALOG SOUND!...
SO BEAUTIFUL!.........

GREAT GENIUS ...

A man way,way ahead of his times...he built this almost 100 years ago, and you could have an orchestra at your fingertips, i would love to have a trautonium..its not digital, so the sounds are alot more realistic in my opinion.

Patrick Frugé:
Has anyone ever interviewed Oskar Sala's nextdoor neighbors to find out what it was like living next door to him? Police records of noise complaints? He obviously had a brilliant mind with an ability to remember what each and every switch, knob, other controls did on the Trautonium. Admittedly, Oskar Sala, was a very innovative sound effects musician and composer. How did he transpose his compositions to musical scores for others to read and perform? What a musical score for motion picture sound tracks like Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds", must have looked like on paper.

I am not sure why this composer and this instrument have never been given the credit due - these instruments were created and used since the 30s right? What would 60s television done without the trautonium ?
