Hands Off @ Ether Festival - April 2010

hands off logo

Hands Off has quickly grown into a thousand-hand, all embracing, theremin convergence of players, builders, and aficionados from across Great Britain and the globe.

This year will feature performances by Lydia Kavina, who will also give a talk and master class, and ThereminWorld Memebers(!): Chris Conway, Alexander Thomas, and Beat Frequency, aka Gordon Charlton, founder-director-publicist-&-handyman of Hands Off. There will be a Theremin Cello duet too, and a Grand Finale of twenty thereminists!

A public interactive theremin installation will up up for the week. The installation uses 16 custom built theremins by Fred Mundell of Fundamental Designs Ltd.

I couldn't possibly thank and congratulate GordonC (and Mrs. GordonC too I'm sure!) enough for Hands Off. It has become a major and inspiring theremin event and has been the most consistent and fastest growing festival for the theremin.
