Albany Records has released SHORT STORIES (http://gernotwolfgang.com/CD/Short_Stories_CDs.asp), a collection of chamber music by composer Gernot Wolfgang.

One of the compositions on this album is THEREMIN'S JOURNEY for Theremin, piano and electronica. The piece was commissioned by Joanne Pearce Martin and generously underwritten by Rich and Luci Janssen.

Here is a short review by Rodney Punt on the website LA Opus:

"Gernot Wolfgang knows what he's doing ... Theremin's Journey is a mixture of old electronics, new media and traditional piano with more than enough incident to transcend its vernacular idiom into something very cool, clever and seductive."

THEREMIN'S JOURNEY can be downloaded as part of the whole album from iTunes (http://itunes.apple.com/be/album/gernot-wolfgang-short-stories/id422498799), Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Gernot-Wolfgang-Short-Stories/dp/B004PWTXJI/) and other online outlets.

It was Joanne Pearce Martin, both on Theremin and piano.

Good to know, she deserves to be credited on the album too.
There is a picture of her in the LA Phil blog (http://www.laphil.com/connect/tourblog/on-tour-2007.cfm) with an article she wrote for them about the theremin, and on her LA Phil bio page (http://www.laphil.com/philpedia/artist-detail.cfm?id=336) "she is the proud owner of a Moog “Etherwave Pro,” and performed on it in public for the first time on March 16, 2010 at Zipper Hall on her “Piano Spheres” recital."
