Theremin

A musician with his home-made theremin performing in Piazza Sant'Antonio Nuovo.

If you'd like to hear the peculiar sound the theremin makes, here's a link to the virtuoso Pamelia Kurstin. She performs and discusses her theremin, the not-just-for-sci-fi electronic instrument that is played without being touched !

It's the first time I've heard of this instrument but it sounds fascinating! More than hearing it, I'd love to actually watch a performance.
