The Theremin Story

Featuring contributions from Cyril Lance and Steve Dunnington (Moog Music), Dorit Chrysler, and Paddy Kingsland (The Radiophonic Workshop)

It’s the soundtrack to countless sci-fi and horror movies…

The otherworldly accompaniment to a vision of the future…

At times unsettling… at others, ethereal and beautiful…

And it is regarded as one of the most unique instruments ever created.

To celebrate one hundred years since its invention we’ve spoken to engineers, composers and performers who have learned, and loved, the theremin over many decades, to tell the story of its past, its present and its future.

This is The Theremin Story.

Featuring in-depth contributions from the Moog Music team, Dorit Chrysler (Founder, New York Theremin Society) and The Radiophonic Workshop’s Paddy Kingsland.

In association with Moog Music.
