'With her Theremin, Samples and Singing Voice she is reaching Neverland. The journey, passing steep cliffs, leads you into a strawberry field'.
(Pippilotti Rist, Zwitserland)
"Thereminia" tempts you to a challenging music performance by the New York based theremin artist Dorit Chrysler, including a live-interaction with Dj Goldfinger and followed by sci-fi disco till deep in the night at OT 301 in Amsterdam.
The concerts of the composer and musicus Dorit Chrysler, best known for her theremin style, feature both popular and experimental compositions, and are impressive performances. Chrysler sees the theremin as the perfect formulation of her artistic expression, actively including her body in the whole performance. The theremin, developed by the Russian Leon Theremin in 1919, is an electronic instrument played through hand and body movements in an electro-magnetic field to produce characteristic eerie sounds.
