The Theremin was invented in 1918 by Leon Theremin and has now been brought back to life by Longwave and Big Briar, it is played by moving the hand closer to an aerial which causes the pitch to rise, a second Aerial (or plate on this model) does volume changes. as there is no reference to note positions it is VERY hard to play tunes on, but with practice it can be done, (ask Lydia Kavina or Bruce Wooley). Usually it is used for creating SFX (via a Quadraverb or similar) or also to control an Analog synths filter via a Pitch to voltage converter. The Longwave is beautifully made and varies in price depending on finish. Kits also available.. A Totally unique instrument/controller
