Phantom Circuit #36: Theremin Day with Miss Hypnotique
A report on Theremin Day in Birmingham (UK), featuring an interview with headlining thereminist Miss Hypnotique.
We also hear from participants in the day’s DIY workshop, experience experiments with optically triggered noisemakers and consider the past, present and possible future of the theremin – one of the very earliest electronic musical instruments.
Live music by Miss Hypnotique and Mr Underwood plus tracks by Clara Rockmore and Misha Mahlin & Lydia Kavina.
Available from 6th May 2010.
