he theremin entered my life four years ago. It has been a tremendously challenging journey, but it is immensely rewarding. The theremin is absolutely deceptively difficult to play with musical precision and finesse.Clara Rockmore, the foremost virtuoso of the theremin introduced it to the world as a serious musical instrument. Over the course of recent music history, this expressive voice was forgotten. Watch/listen to electronic music pioneer Robert Moog discuss this very subject in a video entitled “bob moog cnn” in my video favorites section.
I feel it’s definitely time to reconnect with the roots of the instrument. With these classical theremin videos, I hope to light the way back home.
I would like to send a huge personal thanks to mathematician/thereminist, Thierry Frenkel.
The volume expression circuit of my Moog Etherwave Pro theremin has been modified with a very important enhancement that he designed. visit his website for more info at: http://theremin.tfrenkel.com
