The hand-sketched notes, resembling combs, are used to produce musical accompaniment for motion picture films. N. Voinov of Moscow sketched and cut out cardboard combs of the 80 semi-tones of the piano. By selecting the proper combs and photographing one after another in correct order on the sound track of a movie film, Voinov was able to produce any favorite piano melody.”Link.
