  • Theremin World - What's a Theremin?
    Then in 1938 Leon Theremin was taken back to the Soviet Union by force leaving behind his studio friends business and his wife After a stay in a prison camp Leon Theremin reportedly worked for the KGB designing among other things the bug and methods for cleaning up noisy audio recordings The Theremin in Music Film Originally the theremin was intended to play classical music and even replace entire orchestras with its music from the aether While that never quite happened it has been used in many recordings over the years Several big band conductors featured the theremin in numerous specialty ablums During the 60 s and 70 s bands such as Lothar and the Hand People the Bonzo Doo Dah Dog Band and Led Zeppelin brought the theremin into the public eye for a short time However a theremin did not play in the song Good Vibrations but the instrument used was based on it Then the theremin slipped back into obscurity until the recent revival of the 1990s Today lots of bands use theremins though many unfortunately limit themselves to using the theremin as a novelty The spooky sound of the theremin was used in several movie soundtracks during the 1950 s and 1960 s It provided background mood music for such sci fi classics as The Day the Earth Stood Still where it played a serious musical role and It Came From Outer Space as well in classic well composed thriller soundtracks such as Spellbound and The Lost Weekend In 1993 Steven M Martin produced a documentary entitled Theremin An Electronic Odyssey This incredible film provides an in depth look into the history of the instrument and its inventor The film features rare footage and interviews with music industry legends such as Robert Moog Todd Rundgren and Brian Wilson as well as Prof Leon Theremin himself A Star Is Born One of Prof Theremin s original students was a Russian born musical prodigy named Clara Rockmore By age 5 Clara was already an accomplished violinist But then a problem with her hands forced her to give up the violin in favor of the theremin Clara went on to become the world s best thereminist developing a unique method of aereal fingering to play the theremin with unparalleled precision You can hear Clara perform on the album The Art of the Theremin accompanied on piano by her sister Nadia Reisenberg A Family Tree of Theremins In the late 1920 s RCA produced approximately 500 theremins manufactured by General Electric and Westinghouse Today it is estimated that only half of these still exist An effort is underway to track down the remaining models You can read more about these theremins in our RCA Theremin Registry Electronic music pioneer Robert Moog built theremins long before he built synthesizers In the 1960 s he produced such models as the wedge shaped Vanguard theremin and the shoebox shaped Moog Melodia theremin Today Moog Music Inc produces the popular Etherwave and Etherwave Plus

  • Theremin World - RCA Theremin Component Values and Cabinet Dimensions
    2 5 volts maximum 1 volt maximum2 volts maximum Notes Terminal numbers refer to the schematic of the RCA Theremin done by Arthur Harrison rev 3 4 04 My terminals 3 and 4 on T2 T6 and T8 are reversed from the original All wire sizes are for cotton covered cc wire not enamel Example No 38cc No 34 enamel in diameter c is a calculated value m is a measured value Values in ohms are DC resistances not impedances This is a draft document and I am not responsible for errors Nobody is perfect This document is for information only and historical value Manufacturers commonly changed specifications and methods during production or used components on hand and one instrument may not be exactly like another If you find errors or differences in values you have measured please let me know Copyright by Mark McKeown 2005 It is ok to use this data but please give me credit This was a lot of work and a unique opportunity to make these measurements Some of the coil construction details are available on Arthur Harrison s website so I won t discuss them here but I suggest that you use the exact dimensions I show in the table Modified versions of his schematics are included below as a reference His component labeling is used in this article Electronics All electronic measurements were made with a digital multimeter and a Heathkit IB 3128 impedance bridge Most of the available component values and measurements were correct but not all I have tried to reconcile any differences and use the correct values in my table Power Supply Figure 1 Resistors R4 5 7 and 8 were measured at 14 ohms The rest of the known data were correct The power supply used by RCA in the Theremin is identical to the supply used in the RCA Radiola 60 radio that was produced at the same time The only difference is that terminals 3 and 4 and terminals 6 and 7 are shorted together removing one output voltage and grounding another terminal Figure 1 Power Supply Schematic Main Chassis Figure 2 No physical measurements for the volume oscillator coil T2 or the value of the parallel trimmer capacitor C11 or capacitor C12 were available until now The concentrating coil located at the base of the pitch coil T9 was reportedly 20 mH but I measured it at 11 4 mH I used 20 mH in the replica I constructed and it functioned well The pitch range of the replica was much more than the original RCA Theremin possibly because of this larger value coil I reversed the coil in the RCA to see if the pitch range was reduced as mentioned in the RCA Theremin Service Notes and a significant decrease in range did occur The trimmer capacitor C18 in parallel with the fixed pitch coil T6 measured as 30 pF but probably should be 100 pF There may be a problem with the one I

  • Theremin World - Topic: What do we need to acompany the Theremin ?
    poor intonation particularly for beginners That gorgeous surround sound will be great for the music you are using for your accompaniment but not for the threremin Hope this helps link Report Post Posted 2 10 2016 8 49 37 PM 2 Ginette From South shore of Montreal Joined 2 7 2016 threads posts Thank you so much Coalport yes great help as I am taking note on everything I need to accompany my first Theremin So much info here I sent you an email a week ago and wondered if you had gotten it You are the first person I meet that seems to be close to my region that plays the Theremin I was wondering if you give classes if you are in Montreal or around and if not if you know of people in the region that play the Theremin or teach it again if not I will rely on a good DVD Merci encore Ginette link Report Post Posted 2 11 2016 9 30 03 PM 3 coalport From Canada Joined 8 1 2008 threads posts Hi Ginette I do not live in Montreal I do not know of anyone who offers classes and I do not teach the theremin myself Nevertheless let me offer some advice The theremin is unlike traditional instruments in that there is no established method of playing it If you wanted to learn the cello or the concert harp just about anyone who has been playing for a year or two could show you the basics Not so with the theremin Most thereminists are self taught and no two play exactly alike One of the problems this has created is that with no competent teacher to oversee their progress many budding newbies have unwittingly developed habits that later interfere with their ability
