I dont doubt that Jonny may collect ondes, but if he has a this:
In 1997, the Ondéa project began designing an instrument based on the ondes Martenot. Since the Martenot name is still protected, the new instrument is called Ondéa, but has the playing and operational characteristics of the original ondes Martenot. In 2001, a completed prototype was first used in concerts. These instruments have been in regular use since 2005
that would explain that they carry with it on tour, do u know the phisical differences between the ondes and this ondéa thing?
about the real topic on this thread, i downloaded the Here we go magic album and idk but my laptop gets slow as hell every time i do something related to that album (check the info of the tracks, move the carpet or play the audios).. do u have a nice mp3 file for it?

The original Ondes Martenot invented first used in 1928 didn't have a keyboard/piano component. I learned that from this great video with Jean Laurendeau:

The stars have aligned for us finally and we're off - we've been able to make the show just as we had hoped thanks to some very helpful production partners who have enabled us not to compromise our aims and ideas. I'm also excited to say that this time we're also filming in 3D!
Now.. hang on a minute. Don't scoff. I was very cynical and wary about the 3D thing too.. but I have to tell you it works. It's kind of amazing. 3D TV technology has moved on from red and green glasses and disaster movies. Think of standing in front of a Monet instead of looking at a photograph of a Monet. It's a subtle thing that brings it up a notch without screwing with how beautiful it looks in 2D. I am converted - for our show in any case.. because the depth is in there anyway, just in 3D you can actually see it.. and in 2D you can still feel it. It still looks great.
The series will premiere in 3D on 3Net in the US in July and Sky 3D in the Autumn.
In 2D it will be available through Sony Pictures Crackle network in the US and Sky Arts in the UK.
So all in all - very excited to do this and we hope you like it. We are working hard to make this something we can be proud of.
For more info watch this space. Or alternatively register above and we'll let you know what's happening.. when it happens."
