Anémocorde (or aero-clavichord) is a string keyboard instrument with a five-octave range presented to the French Royal Academy of Sciences in January 1790 by the makers Johann Jakob Schnell and Tschirszchi. The strings of the instrument were set into motion by directed jets of air. The academy's original report concerning the anémocorde was highly critical of the noise level of the apparatus; a second report was substantially more positive.[1]

The instrument had disappeared by 1836.[2]
