    The theremin (originally pronounced [ˈteremin] but often anglicized as [ˈθɛɹəmɪn] [1]), or thereminvox, is one of the earliest fully electronic musical instruments. It was invented by Russian inventor Léon Theremin in 1919, and it is unique in that it was the first musical instrument designed to be played without being touched. – Wikipedia

    There are 2 instruments being played, and since your question does not clearly says to identify the 'other' instrument, and i AM NOT wrong, I demand a point here…

    Theremin – The theremin is one of the earliest fully electronic musical instruments. It was invented by Russian inventor Léon Theremin in 1919, and it is unique in that it was the first musical instrument designed to be played without being touched. It generally consists of two pitch and one volume radio frequency oscillators and two metal antennas. The electric signals from the theremin are amplified and sent to a loudspeaker
