It's a french instrument, made by the Eowave company, by people who were nostalgic of the Ondes Martenot..

This is an analog synth, monophonic, driven by a ribbon controller and an expression key. I don't describe it more, you can find anything on their website:

I found this on youtube:

However for the $1000 some odd bucks it costs I'd rather get me an Etherwave Pro :-)

It is interesting though...

Peter Pringle also has a webpage about the Persephone including an MP3 he recorded using it.

Since Peter Pringle has sold his Persephone, it seems he has removed the MP3 of the piece he played using it from his website. Sorry.
