Enormous Room Free admission
Analog Night at Beat Research with Pamelia Kurstin - The Greatest Living Theremin Player

Presented by Beat Research

Here at Beat Research we tend to do things digitally. In honor of our special guest Pamelia Kurstin,, who is a maestro of the first electronic musical instrument ever invented, we have decided to go completely analog.

People like Leon Theremin and Robert Moog set out to expand the possibilities of music and art through their own magical inventions. Pamelia (whose Theremin was built, and presented to her by Robert Moog himself) pushes the boundaries of her instrument too. While most people relate the Theremin to eerie science fiction sound effects, Pamelia produces sounds ranging from a grumbling electro bass to a layered symphony. Sometimes she even drops Theremin riffs over hip-hop and jungle beats.

Beat Research residents, DJ Flack and DJ C, leave their laptops home in favor of spinning good old fashion analog slabs of vinyl while abstract video art is projected from VHS tapes.

Come have lots of old fashioned futuristic fun.

P.S. The Enormous Room is a stone's throw from the Central Square T stop... next to Central Kitchen, across from Putnam Furniture.
