This month we are giving away a theremin to one lucky winner. One of the earliest electronic musical instruments, the theremin has inspired awe and wonder since its invention in 1920 by Léon Theremin, a genius, Russian scientist, and musician. Utilized by legions of trailblazing artists from classical pioneers to rock stars and film scorers, the theremin is an amazing instrument, and this is your chance to win your own fully functioning theremin. In addition to giving away an instrument at the event, we will have a theremin for you to play, with connected sound processors to recreate classic theremin sounds.
