I rarely use it myself, sir. It promotes rust.

Via the Onion AV Club, a list of the 14 best movies featuring Theremin Music.

Some entries that qualify for the whodathunkit award. The Ten Commandments and The Delicate Delinquent.

  1. Oh, how I do love me some Theremin! Have you seen the documentary on Maestro Theremin? Fascinating.

    I actually built a Theremin once, as a science project, back in Michigan in my early teens. Truth to tell, most of the work was done by my dad, with plans found in an electronics magazine. The thing was encrusted with vacuum tubes, and the antennae were fashioned from coat hangers. But it worked, by golly, and made proper Thereminian noises.

    O where are the waveforms of yesteryear?
