Etherwave: Adventures with the Theremin

Etherwave: Adventures with the Theremin

Straight from the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe!

 

Hypnotique (aka multi-instrumentalist Susi O’Neill) tells her personal story about the world’s first electronic instrument (from 1920s Russia) and its influence on music today – including Led Zeppelin, Kraftwerk and Portishead.

 

In this multimedia talk and music performance, expect tall tales of KGB espionage, spooky soundtracks and her encounters with Amazonians, Bob Moog and Simon Cowell. Hypnotique studied the theremin with Lydia Kavina, grand-niece of its inventor Leon Theremin.

 

Hypnotique has performed with The Heliocentrics, Gong, Dawn of the Replicants and on James May’s 20th Century documentary.
