Theremin: An Electronic Odyssey Review...

One of the most tragic and yet brilliant men of another age, an inventor who was way ahead of his time and yet had everything taken away from him, even his wife...Professor Lev Theremin invented the synthesizer years before it came into prominence in the music scene when bands like the Beach Boys used the Theremin sounds to make "Good Vibrations" and Moog was inspired to create his own synthesizers and old black and white sci-fi flicks used the sounds for its soundtracks. All this time credit had been taken away from him. I'd like to give it back to him.
