After creating the instrument, Theremin is kidnapped by the KGB to work on inventions and surveillance technology.

Audience Reviews for Theremin: An Electronic Odyssey

  • Dec 31, 2012
    A very very cool documentary on the inventor of one of the most imaginative musical instruments ever constructed - the theremin. Known best for being in the background of the Beach Boys' Good Vibrations, the theremin provides an unlikely partner to the composition of both classical and modern works.

    A documentary about the creator of the musical instrument, Leon Theremin. It's a story about a man with a passion for electronics and music, a man with an inventive and radical mind. It should come as no surprise that he had a profound influence on the development of electronic music as we know it. The theramin took on a life of its' own. It became the stuff of do-it-yourself kits and a thousand movie soundtracks. You know, that sound that usually accompanies the flying saucer along with the score for The Day The Earth Stood Still? The instrument even co-starred with Jerry Lewis in The Delicate Delinquent. A new generation of fans tested the limits of what a theramin could do, to include The Beach Boys' Brian Wilson and a song we're all too familiar with. <a href="http://s273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/?action=view¤t=Theremin.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/Theremin.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>
