Electronic Music from the Aether


Welcome to

Hi - I'm Richard, and this is my theremin website.

I've had an interest in the theremin for over ten years, and when I was researching the theremin in the beginning, I thought it would be an excellent idea to collate all those bits of paper I'd gathered in one place. I realised that if that place was a website, other people might find some of the items of interest. Ten years, three URLs, and hours of coding later, this version of the website finally exists.

Of course, in that time, we've witnessed an explosion in interest in the theremin. Ten years ago, when you said you owned a theremin, without fail people would say "What's that?". These days, the theremin is more well known than ever before, but still, those that know what a theremin is still see it as a novelty instrument - an instrument used to make 'spooky effects', or perhaps worse still, an instrument of comedy best left in the hands of Bill Bailey.

 In truth, the the theremin is a classical musical instrument, designed by its inventor to sit alongside the traditional instruments of the orchestra, and create music of beauty. The communication of that preceding sentence is the aim of this website.
