I went, and it was a great show!

Sesku Roba in particular put on a great set - they were my favorite of the evening. Sesku's theremin playing was top-notch, very accurate and precise. He has developed a strange technique of vibrato, which he wags his finger. Although it looked strange, it produced a very nice vibrato.

Ed Sussman played a very spacey-looking custom instrument. He played very well, but unfortunately had a poor live mix, causing his theremin to sound very "muffled".

All in all, it was a fun evening - I hope to see more of this series in the future.

Cool. I've seen video of Ed Sussman's theremin. It's an Etherwave, but he custom-built his own stand & case for it out of fiberglass. It looks very very cool on the video. I'll see if I can dig that up and post a clip somewhere on Thereminworld.

For anyone interested in learning more about Seksu Roba, here's the link to their details page:
