CSA artists Eclectic Laboratory Chamber Orchestra will premiere original music written for the Ondes Martenot on Saturday, April 19. But what the heck is an Ondes Martenot? Come see Wavemakers on Tuesday, April 15 and find out.
This feature documentary takes us on an intriguing human and musical discovery of the most expressive of electronic instruments, the Ondes Martenot. A group of Martenot aficionados pursues the legacy of Maurice Martenot (1898–1980), inventor of an instrument as rare and fragile as it is magical. Musicians, artisans and scientists strive to unravel the mysteries of this “Stradivarius of the electronic age.”
AFTER THE SHOW
Renowned Ondes Martenot musician Geneviève Grenier will give a live demonstration of the instrument and invite the audience to see it onstage.
