The termen-vox (theremin), the precursor of the synthesizer, built in 1919 by the Russian inventor Lev Sergejewitsch Termen (Theremin), is the worlds first commercially produced electronic musical instrument. The instrument is played with the two hands by moving them in front of two separate antennas. As usual you control pitch and volume determined by the distance between the hands and the antennas. The termen-vox generates a sound similar to a female voice.
In a five day seminar at the Theremin Center (Moscow) we will work out the basic musical structures. In our work we emphasize the use of the termen-vox as a controller for various anologue synthesizers and the use of female voices in similarity and contrast to the termen-vox's electronic voice.
