Hope you like it!

I used my Kees Enkelaar, -it is very discreet- from the 2nd part of the song and after.

I checked your track (though it is not my cup of tea, I still enjoyed it), but the theremin is hard to discern... Did you change its sound by the use or a filter or?

I checked this out - I "liked" the song, thought it was well produced - not really my "cup of tea" right now (a little too dark) - but back in my early 30's I might even have bought it.

"Discreet" is an understatement, IMO - The Enkelaar (if not set to wasp-in-a-jar tone) has low harmonic content (nearly sine) so unless really cranked up, or playing when other instruments are playing quietly, will not stand out..

That said, I do think the Enkelaar fitted in well in this piece - I think you were wise not to have it dominant - the piece is dark enough without any "woo-woos" which could tip the mood to comic. It is also often a good sign when one cannot discern a "discreetly" played theremin - as, IMO, a badly played theremin cannot remain "discreet" !

Fred.
