TIME TO LEARN SOMETHING NEW

Dear Stu

What is a Theremin?

Signed Curious

Well Curious I'm glad you asked.
.
It was invented by Russian inventor Léon Theremin in 1919, and it is unique in that it was the first musical instrument designed to be played without being touched. It consists of two radio frquency oscillators and two metal antennae. The electric signals from the theremin are amplified and sent to a loudspeaker.
.
Here is a fine example of a Theremin being used on a cover of the Gnarls Barkley song Crazy

If you ever get the chance to see Bill Bailey, he uses one in most of his shows to great effect! :)
