In this Video Dorit Chrysler, co-founder of the New York Theremin Society, explores the sonic possibilities of the Theremini, Moog’s latest addition to the theremin family.
The Theremini is a re-imagining of one of the oldest electronic musical instruments in history, and Bob Moog’s first love — the Theremin. The Theremini combines a powerful sound engine derived from Moog’s award winning synthesizer, Animoog, with the traditional no-touch playing of a traditional Theremin.
Assistive pitch quantization allows each player to adjust the instrument’s level of playing difficulty. At the maximum position, the Theremini will play every note in a selected scale perfectly, making it impossible to play a wrong note. As this control is decreased, more expressive control of pitch and vibrato becomes possible. When set to minimum, the Theremini will perform as a traditional Theremin – the analog heterodyning oscillator controls pitch and there is absolutely no assistance.
