Lev Sergeyevich Termen

"I visualize great possibilities in connection with the problem of controlling sound material by means other than mechanical, by free movement of the hands in the air, which offers more intimate connection of these sounds with the individuality of the performing artist, and will make available not only the expressive power of existing instruments, but perhaps even greater possibilities."

(Always updating..... well, sometimes)

Hello, and welcome to my spot on the World Wide Web. This site is for those who share an interest in the father of ALL electronic musical instruments, the THEREMIN. Currently we are at a pinnacle of interest in this instrument. Let's not let that fervor die down.

Stay a while, and look around. Try my "MEGALINK" page, and feel free to view/sign my guestbook at the bottom of this page.

Thanks, and best wishes with your theremin endeavors,

"It's a little like the conductor who molds the whole orchestra: All the music is produced by his motions, by the tips of his fingers. But he's only conducting other people; he doesn't produce a single sound. Here, with the theremin, you are the conductor, but you make the sound. You make the music."- Clara Rockmore, KEYBOARD magazine, Feb. 1994
