In this video, you’ll see Olivier Messiaens composition Oraison (1937) performed by Richard Leinhart. He’s playing the Haken Continuum Fingerboard (expensive controller) controlling the Buchla 200e (even more expencive synthesizer).  It’s very beautiful:

Originally, the piece was written for six ondes martenots. Read more about the performance here.
