Cornelius Loy Jr.

playing a Theremin at Dances of Vice — I have never seen anyone play one and he totally rocked.

 

"two metal antennas which sense the position of the player's hands and control oscillators for frequency with one hand, and amplitude (volume) with the other."

 

according to Wikipedia, it is the first electronic instrument.

 

I think it would be cool to have one of these super overamplified... like, noone has ever really taken advntage of this sound and made it theirs, maybe the Beach Boys... it's so cool, it's the feedback instrument to me. feedback all the time.
