Eine Violinen-Spiel-Maschine

Da ich „Hupfeld Phonoliszt Violina“ nicht aussprechen kann, muss es wohl die „Violinen-Spiel-Maschine“ tun. Dank beeindruckender Mechanik, drei Violinen und einem Klavier, schafft es diese Gerätschaft ein komplettes Stück zu spielen. Ich bin schwer begeistert.

„The Hupfeld Company invented a device in 1907 which was dubbed the “8th wonder of the world” for automating the violin part. Three violins (each with only one active string) mounted vertically were played by a round rotating bow made of 1300 threads of horse hair, according to the program on the roll of perforated paper. The small bellows replaced the violin player’s fingers, pressing on the strings to obtain the necessary notes.“
