Sabroso Shot #12 - The Online Theremin

Theremins are crazy. 

They were invented in the early days of the Soviet Union by Leon Theremin, and they produce sound by basically amplifying feedback and static between two antennae, which you can manipulate with your hand.

It produces an eerie and unsettling sound. You may recognise it from the theme song to Midsomer Murders.

The good people at Femur Design have made an online version of the theremin, which you can play here

After you've played around with it for a couple of minutes, check out this video to see how it should be done.

Once you're done with that, check out this TED talk by Pamelia Kurstin. She is astonishingly talented, and you'll get an idea of how versatile the theremin is, despite it being so bizarre.

For services-to-theremin, Femur Design got links from 35+ different domains.
