Ok, that's really a thing. You actually have a moog theremin? and you can play it? that's awesome, but I don't believe you .
I've got two of them. Moog Music is just down the road from me. My Pro is valuable so it tends to stay put away. The Big Briar is small and easy to set up, so I fool around with it more.ukimalefu wrote:And it's Woodstock, you should play along with a guitar, acoustic or electric, any kind is ok.
I did that, too!
Gimmie an F!
whoopee were all gonna die!
So you have a theremin, that's cool. I do believe you, but I think we all want to see video of you playing the Star Trek theme music.
Having performed on stage with a Theramin, I can say that it is a terrible, terrible instrument unless it is in the hands of a master. The best place for a Theramin, IMO, is at the bottom of a river. To hear what a Theramin is supposed to sound like, and to hear its true potential, check out Clara Rockmore. Ho-ly human waste!!
And it's not a Theramin on the Star Trek Theme, it's a soprano named Loulie Jean Norman.
I just had to pause the video to come and post this:
OMG! DAT BASSLINE!
