  Electronic musical instrument - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
He introduced early gestural sensor based instruments in the concert hall and also his recent work is an important inspiration for a new generation of live performers using physical sensor instruments to play laptop-based sound-synthesis in composed or improvised music.
One of the many instruments constructed in the following decades was the Theremin, invented by Leon Theremin in 1917, which used a vacuum tube oscillator to make sounds that depended on the interactions of the user with an RF field.
The most commonly used electronic instruments are synthesizers, so-called because they artificially generate sound using techniques such as additive, subtractive, FM and physical modelling synthesis to create sounds.

 Electronic music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Electronic music may also be referred to as computer music because software has allowed manipulated sounds to be processed and sequenced digitally and conveniently, in contrast to analog synthesizers that use electrical hardware to manipulate signals.
The earliest purely electronic instrument was the Teleharmonium or Telharmonium, developed by Thaddeus Cahill in 1897.
Electronic music, especially in the late 1990s fractured into many genres, styles and sub-styles, too many to list here, and most of which are included in the main list.

 Acoustic Instruments
An instrument's tuning is largely in the manufacturing process, although there is often some provision made for adjustments.
With wind instruments, the resonator is usually in the shape of a pipe and the energy is supplied as a stream of air into the pipe.
The part of the instrument that extends beyond the open holes acts as a second resonator, modifying the sound produced by the primary resonator in a manner that changes somewhat from note to note.

 HISTORY
The instrument was placed in a window where air current would pass, and the strings were activated by the wind current.
The instrument weighed over 200 tons and was designed to transmit sound over telephone wires; however, the wires were too delicate for all the signals.
The instrument used the same basic idea as the Theremin, but instead of a radio antenna, it utilized a moveable electrode was used to produce capacitance variants.

 Early electronic instruments (from electronic instrument) --  Encyclopædia Britannica
The dawn of electronic technology was marked by the invention of the triode vacuum tube in 1906 by Lee De Forest.
The triode gave musical instrument developers unprecedented ability to design circuits that would produce repetitive waveforms (oscillators) and circuits that would strengthen and articulate waveforms that had already been produced (amplifiers).
Features images of instruments with detailed discussions of their use and development between 1650 and 1900.

 Malcolm Ball - Early Electronic Instruments
But it was the beginning of the 20th century when electronic circuitry began to be exploited to produce a new sound world, and this is really the key to electronic instruments, the quest musicians and composers had to create new sounds previously unheard.
On both instruments you have to find your own pitch so most players either have or develop perfect pitch and as there are no mechanical or tactile elements like strings, pistons, membranes etc the means of expression is instant from body gestures and minute movements of a finger or arm to the resultant sound.
Although the VCS-3 was really an electronic music studio in a box about the size of a stereo reel to reel tape machine, musicians began to use it to transform other instruments.

However, these were not true synthesizers in the modern sense, as they were not configurable to produce a range of complex sounds by additive or subtractive synthesis, instead generating single pure tones with controllable pitch, amplitude and vibrato.
The first digital synthesizers were academic experiments in sound syncnthesis using digital computers.
