Vlad Kreimer is an engineer, scientist and inventor now based in Moscow. He is also the man behind SomaSynths.com which builds some extraordinary instruments and audio devices. One of those devices is “Ether”, a pocket-sized device which picks up nearby electromagnetic radiation and amplifies (and presumably frequency-shifts) it into audio signals. After a while on the preorder waiting list I’m happy to say that one of these is now on its way to me. I’ll definitely be posting some examples in the months to come, but for now have a look at the fascinating demo video of Ether:
