In America, the Thanksgiving holiday starts today (more or less). To celebrate, The Guild of Scientific Troubadours will be reveling in the gorgeous sounds of the theremin. Come, listen with us!
This beautiful performance really needs no words. The “matryomin” is a theremin built into a matryoshka doll. Russian hands-free electronic instrument plus Russian nesting dolly. Makes sense, I suppose.
You can see a ukulele and matryomin performance of “Love Me Tender,” read more about Masama Takeuchi and his matryomin ensemble, or about theremins in general – or you can buy a kit off Amazon by clicking over there to the right. (Christmas is coming, gentle readers.)
