Have you ever heard of a theremin?
It’s a musical instrument, although to play it you don’t actually touch it. It is electronic and the two antenna sense where the musician’s (a thereminist) hands are. According to Wikipedia, “the relative position of the thereminist’s hands … control oscillators for frequency with one hand, and amplitude (volume) with the other”. It has quite an eerie sound.
The reason I am sharing this with you is because I have been watching one of my all time favourite tv shows, Midsomer Murders. The opening theme has a haunting duet with a bass clarinet and a theremin. If you’ve never seen the show, here is Celia Sheen playing the theme on a theremin (listen for the bass clarinet as well):
What do you think of the theremin? And do you like this theme music? (I do!)
