  • Theremin Music

    I just found this Clara Rockmore fan page on My Space. It's a handy way to listen to some music played on the original electronic instrument if you haven't already got Clara's album.

    I love the theremin, which has been used in some incredible music, probably most famously "Good Vibrations" by Brian Wilson and his band the Beach Boys.

    Thanks for posting this, DA! The theremin is an awe inspiring instrument, to say the least. You've reminded me that I need to get the movie-Theremin - An Electronic Odyssey, now that it's been picked up again(it was OOP last I looked). I highly recommend this movie.

    Didn't Robert Moog die this year?

      Saw a couple of videos of the BBs performing G.V. and it looked as if they were using a Martenot Ondes rather than a Theremin, they're very similar except that the M.O. is probably much easier to control because of the ring-on-a-string controller, cool stuff.

        Madrigal Rose - Yes that movie is wonderful, and yes, sadly Robert Moog did pass on this past year.
