Mark Mothersbaugh and Raymond Scott's Electronium

Inverse Room writes to recommend this great piece from LA Weekly about Mark Mothersbaugh and his amazing career and collection of music gear, which includes Raymond Scott's non-working Electronium - featured in the video above. As the gasps and grunts on the video soundtrack suggest, it really is the Holy Grail as far as synth collection goes, short of finding a working Teleharmonium at a car boot sale.

Tom, 3 great posts that blew my mind (sony ad, "Karlheinz Stockhausen" posts from your fellow readers, thenthis). thank you sir.
Needs to hire the guy that rebuilt the novachord:
C'mon Mothersbaugh, get off the stick and get it fixed already!!

I would love to see one of those things in real life, as Raymond Scott is a musical hero of mine.

I would even more love to hear one playing!
