^Love your username, it brings back good memories of that show. I've been trying to find <*you know what*> online, but have been unsuccessful so far.

As for the holophonor, I recently saw "The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings", and the kid at the beginning was playing that one piano piece. Anyone know what it's called?

The holophonor is directly based on the "Visi-Sonor" from Isaac Asimov's Foundation and Empire (as revealed in DVD commentary in "Devil's Hands..." ), a similarly difficult instrument which produces both music and dazzling images (though a Visi-sonor had the side-effect that it could be used as a mind-control device).

The Holophoner was invented in 2672 by Hugo Von Ratzinburg. Von Ratzingburg taught Holographics at New Vienna University, when, due to budget cuts, he was told to teach Xenomusic also. His new class consisted of Holographics and Xenomusic students. So, inorder to create a commen interest for both, he created the Holophoner. However when he took it to the patent office, he was denounced as being insade and was duly commited into a near by mental institution, where he spent the next 50 years.

I found this exclamation on wikipedia

just an interesting side note, in the devils hands, when Leela walks in on Fry practising music for the opera, the part of music he is playing sounds remarkably like the music right at the end of the episode

maybe Leela walked in when he was practising the final few bars of music  confused

I know this thread is old but I'm going to answer it anyway.

The part people are referring to when Leela catches him writing the opera is a Bansuri flute, and the track can actually be found on an album called "Lotus", the track is called "Cicadas". It sounds like it's been mixed so I'm looking for where the original track came from.

Just thought some nerds might enjoy knowing; you can get it on iTunes smile

The sound of the holophonor is a mix of synth in the background and a bamboo flute as the main instrument.
