With only eight days left until the first Theremin Day, I wanted to present eight reasons (one each day) why I think you should attend. Here is the first:
A video showing one of the Optical Theremins I have built and will be using for my exclusive performance of “Steve Reich’s Pendulum Music for Optical Theremin and torch”. These same Optical Theremins will be built by people in the (sold out) workshop on Theremin Day.
For an idea of what Pendulum Music sounds like, here is a preview of a Sonic Youth performance of it. At Theremin Day the feedback sound will be replaced by that of the Optical Theremin, and the performance will be in complete darkness.
