"Music is the cup that holds the wine of silence. Sound is that cup, but empty. Noise is that cup, but broken.”

Teleharmonium

An electromechanical instrument called the Teleharmonium,  was developed by Thaddeus Cahill in 1897.


A keyboard with 36 notes per octave, and the experience of listening described as "highly irritating". Unfortunately, no recordings have survived



In 1907, Ferruccio Busoni was interested in the Teleharmonium, as well he thought that the "acoustic" instruments were too limited, and in his "Esquisse d'une nouvelle esthétique musicale", he believed in the future "electroacoustic" aera to explore and create new sounds.
