The Artemis – A Wind/String Instrument Inspired by the Ondes Martenot

May 10, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Inspired by the Ondes Martenot, the Artemis is a synthesizer whose pitch is mainly controlled by a ring attached to a loop of string.

It uses breath control for dynamics and combinable trill keys for discrete pitch changes. Using these together allow for some interesting musical approaches.

When I made this instrument, I decided to expose the loop on this instrument as it is interesting to watch as the pitch changes.

The sound and control core engine were made by Nyle Steiner (it is simply one of his early analog E.V.I.s.) The Artemis was completed in April of 2013.
