Surbahar And MIDI Theremin Improvisation

Sunday Synth Jam: Here’s something a little different – a Surbahar And MIDI Theremin jam.

The theremin is being controlled by the proximity of the surbahar to the pitch antenna.

via copperleaves:

This is a short improvisation for surbahar and Moog MIDI Ethervox theremin. This surbahar was made for me many years ago by the Indian luthier Kanai Lal.

The theremin, which is used here as a kind of “movable drone” is being played purely by the proximity of the neck of the surbahar to the vertical (pitch) antenna. Theremin volume is controlled by a small knob on the floor next to me.
