Theremin Thursday for October 14, 2010

A weekly collection of links featuring the only instrument that makes electricity sing!

Video Exhibit A: Human Theremin! -- It's a Halloween costume. It's a DIY Theremin. It's both! NerdKits has complete instructions for making the ultimate in wearable instruments. And there's still time to order yours and be the cool kid at your neighbor's costume party. Check out the video! (Hat tip to Hack A Day).

Exhibit B: BOWW Tribal Poetry -- Electronic, rhythmic, and other instruments provide the score for a poetry slam in Berlin. Barbara Buchholz plays Theremin.

Video Exhibit C: Jean Michel Jarre -- Jean Michel Jarre plays a Theremin at the O2 Arena London on 10/10/10 as part of his 2010 World Tour.

Theremimage: Our Theremin photo this week is another look at the Human Theremin controls (or is this Spider-Man webbing controls?).

Endnote: Repeating this from last week (yes, I'm really that big on this show) -- If you're interested in catching a live Theremin performance, and you're going to be in the Bucks County, PA, area for the Halloween weekend, you should consider coming to Sellersville Theater 1894 for The Divine Hand's 3rd annual Halloween concert.
