The theremin was invented in 1919 and became the first electronic musical instrument that had a career in the XX-century and it is still the only instrument which can be played without any mechanical touching. The theremin-player moves his hands near two antennas. The proximity of the right hand to the vertical antenna changes the electromagnetic field thus changing the pitch of the sound over a six-octave range. Left hand controls the volume. Theremin's sound remembers sometimes the cello or violin, sometime the flute and often the human voice. The instruments circuit uses a beat frequency oscillator, in which an audible musical tone is derived from the beating between two high-frequency oscillators. The frequency of one of the oscillators is fixed. The frequency of the other is altered by the performer's proximity to the pitch antenna.

AMG have no review but 4 stars for this album. Powerful show The blind Boys Of Alabama made at the House Of Blues. I just love the "Blind Boys of Alabama". They are just incredible. At times when I want to just sit back, close my eyes and let my feelings go, I turn on the "Blind Boys of Alabama", and their music just brings out emotion like few others can. Very very good CD.
