THEREMIN Kartoonz!
Surreal Animated Nuggets of WTF?!

Posted by

Long thought to be lost to the ether, a whole bunch of surreal animations from my former website
have surfaced. They were originally created in Flash. With the help of an expert, about 75% were
restored and now function. Some are only a few seconds long, some are looped action and others are,
well…..what on earth was I thinking? More fun than a barrel of monkey-howled sine waves!

“Vincent,” Nine Years Later…

Posted by

It’s hard to believe I recorded this nine years ago. Thanks always to Dan Burns and his marvelous
creation, the B3 Deluxe Theremin. This instrument’s tone and versatility helped capture the
heartbreaking beauty in Don McLean’s song. Two of Van Gogh’s starry nights in the windows.

Sleepy Time Theremin with Fauré’s “Berceuse”

Posted by

Here, from Gabriel Fauré’s Dolly Suite is his “Berceuse” (lullaby). Accompanied by Tara Buzash on the
piano, the theremin hopes to lull you to sleep.

The Aviary On Mars

Posted by

A year ago, the notion of creating a short musical science fiction fantasy about Mars was just a seed.
Here’s the full flower, from the new performance piece, “Scheduled Flights on a Theremin.”.

Trenton Computer Festival,
Here I Come!

Posted by

With new music, new performance pieces, and a good portion of mad scientist hysteria, I’ll be
presenting at the amazing Trenton Computer Festival. If you’re into computers, electronics, techno-
gadgets and the one of the best geekoid experiences on the planet and you’ve never been to this
huge event, be sure to keep Saturday, March 17 open. Here’s what I’ll be doing:

 

THE THEREMIN AND TECHNOLOGICAL JOY
The theremin was one of the very first creations of the dawn of the technological age at the beginning
of the 20th century. As such, it presaged the coming of all subsequent electronic instruments as well
as working on principles of physics that resulted in the creation of all manner of marvels, from automatic
opening doors to what was arguably the most notorious spying device ever invented: the first passive
surveillance bug, invented by Leon Theremin himself. The unstoppable rising tide of technology permeates
every aspect of our lives, from recreational to military/industrial to medical. Through musical demon-
stration as well as stories that cover history, physics and a look at the neurological components of emotions
such as joy, wonder and happiness, “The Theremin and Technological Joy” humorously examines our human
fascination with creating and possessing technological gadgetry.
