You sound good

The theremin was the world's first electronic musical instrument. It was invented by the Russian physicist Lev Termen in the 1920s and is played without being touched. One hand is held close to the vertical antenna, this controls the pitch, and the other hand controls the volume. Here, you generate an electric field with your body which the theremin converts into sounds. Try it yourself. Post your song directly....
