|Theremin, musical instrument|
The theremin is a very remarkable musical instrument. I saw it by accident on TV. This instrument was invented by a young Russian physicist named Lev Sergeevich Termenin 1920.
The theremin is unique among musical instruments in that it is played without physical contact. The musician stands in front of the instrument and moves his or her hands in the proximity of two metal antennas. Most frequently, the right hand controls the pitch and the left controls the volume, although some performers reverse this arrangement.
Celia Sheen plays the theme tune from ITV's drama series "Midsomer Murders" on the Theremin
