It seems the “spooky side” of the theremin is too frequently explored – there are footprints everywhere. When are we going to hear from a thereminist bold enough to explore the “butterflies and rainbows” side of the instrument? Instead of “Demon on your chest” – yuck! – what about “A Purring Kitten on your Chest”? Awwww. Or in place of “Solar Winds Reveal Ghosts” how about “Solar Winds Reveal Smiles, Sunshine, and Balloons”? 2 Cute.

So what former pop star is she the kid of? I think you ranted off topic there…
The Theremin is hellishly difficult to play. I’d say it is as hard to play one well, and in tune, as a violin. I call it Devil In A Box. All I have ever managed to do with one is to make creepy noises. Which is basically what I do with anything.
The performance on this piece was very well done. Kudos to Ms. Lundy.
