Drawer : a panel board at the left side where the musician plays the “touche d’expression”, chooses the timbres and the loudspeakers.
« Haut-parleur principal » : it is a standard loudspeaker.
Keyboard : this monophonic keyboard with a variable-frequency oscillator on which each key can be used to produce vibrato is controlled much in the same way as it is on cello.
« Métallique » : source of sound amplification where a gong
is made to vibrate by means of a motorized amplifier.
Monodic/monophonic : like the human voice or the flute,
the onde is a monodic instrument.
“Palme” : source of sound amplification where strings tensed along each side of the loudspeaker are made to vibrate by means
of a motorized amplifier.
“Reverb” : source of sound amplification where springs are made to vibrate by means of a motorized amplifier.
Ring : this other way of playing (beside the keyboard) controls
a potentiometer which can produce perfect glissandi.
Timbres : waveforms you can combine.
“Touche d’expression” : it is a potentiometer which offers very subtle control over dynamics, articulation and attacks.
