Norwegian Exhibition of old music technology

The Norwegian Technical Museum (the NTM) opened a permanent exhibition of old music technology. You get to see piano's playing "themselves", the old echo machines and a lot of old gadgets. You can see the old organs, the Mellotron, a Yamaha DX7 synth played by the Norwegian group a-ha, and a rather EXOTIC computer/sequencer system called the UMI.
