Asheville's Orange Peel voted in top 5 venus by Rolling Stone

The Orange Peel, site of EtherMusic 2008, has been voted in the top 5 venues by Rolling Stone. This a huge award for the club and a true nod to the quality of the music scene in Asheville, NC. I think Moog Music is lucky to have such a great venue to host the next theremin music festival. Congratulations!



Buy Portishead's Theremin at Auction

Adrian Utley's theremin for sale by auction at SphereMusic.com

Long time readers of ThereminWorld may recall Portishead's infamous claim to have used a theremin on their album Dummy, followed by the reveal that the part was actually performed on a MiniMoog, followed by Adrian Utley's posting of the actual synth patch details on the band's website. Apparently they wanted to use a theremin on the recording but found it too difficult to hit the exact notes they wanted. I never saw them perform live, but apparently they actually did use a theremin for concerts.




Video: 100 videos on YouTube and going strong!

Keeping with the video theme today, Rupert Chappelle has let us know he has reached a milestone with 100 theremin videos on YouTube! How's that for World Thereminization?!



Video: Cat plays theremin



It's a slow news day when we have to resort to video of a cat playing a theremin to liven up the conversation, but it's just so darned cute! In this video, Fluffy (name changed to protect the actual cat) wails away on an Otona no Kagaku desktop theremin, going as far as to show off some "experimental" playing techniques (e.g. nose to theremin). Be sure to watch to the end for proof that thereminists can have groupies!




Treat Yourself :)
