Yesterday 5A and 5E were introduced to a very unusual and niche instrument by Masha – the theremin. Masha received this as a Christmas present and has been experimenting with the instrument.
The theremin features in the Midsummer Murders theme, and similar sounding instruments can be heard in the original Star Trek theme and Beach Boys ‘Good Vibrations’. It is most commonly associated with sci-fi films and programmes due to the eerie nature of its sound.
Once Masha has mastered the technique of manipulating the air waves, we look forward to hearing her perform a piece!
