Imagine an instrument that the user plays without touching! As futuristic as it may sound, the Theremin has been around since the 1920’s, its haunting tones have been heard everywhere from Carnegie Hall to science fiction film scores. The Theremin is a simple-looking box with two antennae and unlike conventional instruments, it has no keys, strings, valves or buttons. Its volume and pitch are governed by proximity through an electromagnetic field. The experience is part music, part science and part story-telling. Hear the sound and history behind the first electronic instrument with performance artist Carl Welden, who will give a 'hands-off' demonstration, followed by Q & A. Audience members will then be given a rare opportunity to try this unique instrument for themselves, heralding quirky fun and loads of smiles!
