I appreciate the practical suggestions others have made.... but obviously
;-) you would have a crank operated (or at least wound
up/started) mechanical sequencer with an old typewriter style keyboard for
activating different sequences.
All other parameter changes would be achieved with big levers.
Your oscillators would be tube based and filtering would be achieved with
moving baffles in front of the speakers.
Pistons on metal for your drums.
All other electronic sound (tube based) would play through a satellite dish
sized speaker behind you.
You could throw in one or two tesla coils for melodic stuff.
and there would be lots of pyrotechnics.
