A lot of the early music of the Korean group Sanulim might fit here. This one is kind of a classic riff, but these guys always sound unique in their execution and overall sound.

It was one of those keyboards with the built-in theremin - I forget who made them...

There's a lot of ondes martenot on Jacques Brel records, his arranger François Rauber seems to have been fond of using it.
