  • Theremin World - Remembering Leon Theremin 20 Years Later
    has made in that time The renaissance that began with the documentary film Theremin An Electronic Odyssey has continuously grown and thrived Tens of thousands of theremins have been built sold and played by new enthusiasts Theremins are now used by hundreds of bands and regularly appear on television both on screen and in soundtracks More people are playing the theremin professionally now than at any previous point in history Things are looking up Yet despite our progress our community has much work to do in order to live up to the legacy Leon Theremin left for us We still battle the perception of the theremin as that woo woo instrument Many players expect the difficulty of the instrument to be an excuse for performing badly leaning on its novelty to cover up pitchy performances or impress crowds with wobbly siren immitations There are still far more people today who have never seen or heard of a theremin than those who have It is our destiny to change this We need to continue promoting the theremin as a serious musical instrument and do so with the energy and passion Leon Theremin had when he toured the world We need to introduce the theremin to young musicians and foster their growth during their musical journey We need to continue to demonstrate the need for a spectrum of theremins for all budgets and performance levels especially at the high end We need to continue World Thereminization This is a call to action to those who are serious about the theremin The future of the theremin is in our hands What do we want to happen in the next 20 years Leon Theremin World Thereminization Posted by Jason November 3 2013 Article Categories Art Books Composition Contests Events Exhibits Films Gear Gestural Instruments

  • Theremin World - Rare Recording Of "La Croix Sonore" On Auction
    2013 1 comments To be honest I had not heard much about La Croix Sonore or Sonorous Cross until today and I am now intrigued I am intrigued not only because it is very similar to the theremin only a handful were built in 1926 by a Russian composer but because a rare recording of the instrument is currently being sold at auction According to Wikipedia the Croix Sonore was built by Russian composer Nikolai Obukhov who was living in France at the time He apparently saw a demonstration by Leon Theremin first hand in 1924 and worked with Michel Billaudot and Pierre Dauvillier to build a prototype instrument in 1926 It was later refined and re introduced in 1934 the date of this recording While the instrument was based on heterodyning oscillators and was played like a theremin the electronics were housed inside a large metal sphere with a crucifix extending from the top hence the name sonorous cross You can learn more about La Croix Sonore at 120 Years of Electronic Music At the time of writing the auction has no bids and is asking for a starting bid of 199 This is a rare opportunity to hear a very rare instrument in a composition by its inventor Good luck La Croix Sonore Auctions Posted by Jason October 19 2013 Article Categories Art Books Composition Contests Events Exhibits Films Gear Gestural Instruments History Humor Inspiration Interviews Learn To Play Music Off Topic Performances Tech and DIY World Thereminization Popular Tags Albums Auctions Audio Bob Moog Carolina Eyck Clara Rockmore DIY Dorit Chrysler Etherwave Events History Japan Jason Learn to Play Leon Theremin Lydia Kavina Moog Music New York Spellbound Theremin ArtTheater Theremin History Theremin like Video Website News World Thereminization All tags A d v e r t
