WavingBox's Ultimate Busking Theremin

Wavingbox busking in Mexico

Hailing from Strasbourg, France, There Mine (a.k.a. Wavingbox), has created what might just be the ultimate self-contained theremin busking rig.  And what better way to put it to the test than to fly halfway around the world and play on the streets of Guadalajara, Mexico?

Here's a quick breakdown of the rig:

  • an Etherwave sits atop a flight-worthy hard shell case on 3 metal posts
  • 4 speakers from a Roland Micro Bass RX amplifier are mounted into the case facing the audience (the actual amp electronics are inside)
  • the amp and Etherwave run on battery power
  • extra sheets of metal added to the case to aid in grounding
  • the Etherwave, antennas, and posts all fit inside the case for easy transport

Well done!
