Specters of Ideology Voiced with Theremin

Spectres Logo

Jesse Jones has created a ghostly piece about the ideologies prevalent in Russia at the time Lenin was sending Lev on tour with the newly invented theremin.
Titled "The Specter and the Sphere" the 16mm film features Lydia Kavina filmed performing in theatrical venues.

The film and art exhibition are featured at the Project Arts Centre in Dublin May 16 - June 14.

It sounds like quite a vivid and creative exploration and uses not only theremin performance but a "whispering choir" and historical locations and artifacts.

Hope some of our TW members can check it out and let us know what it's like.
