  • On An Overgrown Path: Theremin and variations on the moon
    is the Moog synthesizer whose inventor Robert Moog started his career selling theremin kits Despite technology improvements the theremin continued to have its advocates These included Brian Wilson left who had to accept a hybrid Electro Thermin for the recording of the Beach Boy s Good Vibrations in 1966 due to the non availabiltiy of the real thing Three years later the best selling album Led Zeppelin ll featured a theremin solo on the opening track Whole Lotta Love The other wordly sound palette of the theremin makes it a natural for film scores Probably the best known film appearance is in Bernard Herrmann s 1951 score for The Day the Earth Stood Still The unusual scoring is for a small orchestra combining the acoustic and electric sounds of brass reed organ Hammond organs pianos percussionists electrically amplified strings and cello and bass and two theremins which play in opposition to create disorienting swirls Dr Samuel Hoffman who recorded the theremin album which started us down this fascinating Overgrown Path was an American chiropidist turned musician He met Léon Theremin while playing in a dance band in the 1930s and became an enthusiastic exponent of the electronic instrument Among Dr Hoffman s claims to fame are playing the theremin part in Miklós Rózsa s score for Hitchcock s Spellbound His Music Out of the Moon is a Capitol album dating from 1947 and was written by classically trained light music composer Harry Revel with arrangements and conducting by easy listening king Les Baxter Apollo 15 Commander Dave Scott and his crew were permanently grounded by NASA for the 6000 trust funds for their children paid for by a German stamp dealer as a reward for carrying unauthorised first day covers to the moon I wonder what the FBI would have done had they known about the Russian connections of Neil Armstrong s on board music Fortunately Music Out of the Moon has passed the test of time better than J Edgar Hoover and it is still in the Basta catalogue So here to end is a 30 second audio sample which is probably quite enough Now read about contemporary music for the theremin and about the early music that travelled on the Voyager space craft Theremin web resources Wikipedia theremin article New book on the history of the theremin Theremin Ether Music and Espionage from University of Ilinois Press ISBN 0252025822 there are also more theremin audio files on this site Dr Samuel Hoffman Clara Rockmore Moon Dust by Andrew Smith DVD Theremin An Electronic Odyssey Moog s history of the theremin First published On An Overgrown Path on March 26th 2006 Audio file from Amazon com Image owners if you do not want your picture used in this article please contact me and it will be removed Report broken links missing images and other errors to overgrownpath at hotmail dot co dot uk Posted by Pliable at Thursday March 01 2007 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to
