Invented by Friedrich Trautwein in 1930, this instrument generates electronic pitches by pressing a wire on a metal bar. The position along the bar determined the pitch generated. The instrument had a wide range of timbres available. Richard Strauss and Paul Hindemith both wrote compositions for the trautonium.
