The Theremin

More than 80 years ago, the music world was changed by a remarkable musical instrument that still seems new. Sara Fishko tells us about an electronic marvel that has its own sound, and its own bizarre story. Here's the next Fishko Files... A theremin exhibition is running now through the summer at the Caramoor Music Center in Katonah, New York, with a special talk by Albert Glinsky on June 1st. And Rob Schwimmer gives a Theremin performance on June 11th at Joe's Pub.
