"... unique voice. It was invented in 1916, just a few years before Victor Theremin invented his first electric musical instrument. Vibes ..."

Ugh... We have so much work left to do for World Thereminization :)

Oh dear.

My School's Head of Music is guilty of the same sort of crimes against Electronic Music though. teacher thought that the theremin was invented in the 1940s, but I didn't bother to correct him. He also pronounces 'Moog' as Mooooog and 'Ondes Martenot'as 'On-days Marti-not'. I don't blame him however for not believing me about the Rhythmicon/ Polyrhythmophone being a real instrument.
