I do take on some peculiar commissions - 16 pitch-only theremins for the public to abuse for 10 days, at the Royal Festival Hall (South Bank Art Centre, London) in 2010, and my next theremin commission is a project which is so crazy it makes the 2010 show seem boring, sensible and mainstream!

I am NOT a theremin repair establishment, just so there is no confusion and that any conflict-of-interest is established up-front.. Etherwaves are best sent to Thierry who has more expierience with these than I can touch (also, I have no great love for the standard EW instruments - and one needs to love a theremin to be able to give it your best! ;-).

I will only exceptionally undertake repairs / modifications if my arm is twisted and my palm greased sufficiently ;-) .. Or if it is an unusual or advanced theremin which I want to examine - in which case I may do the job free! .. If you have a 91 series, Tvox,Henk or Lev theremin (or even an E-Pro) I may even pay you if you let me examine its guts extensively for a few weeks! .. I am best suited if what you want is particularly special and requires my design skills.

Please dont ever ask me to do anything mechanical to your theremin..  drilling holes or the like - I am embarrased by my butchery of one TW friends theremin... That poor Enkelaar was never the same again... )-8

Rob - You're from Brooklyn?  We never would have guessed. LOL

Well Rob, with Scotland, France and Iceland on the itinerary, it looks like you're going to need a helluva lot more than the IRT to getcha where you want to go!  LOL

In fact, 19 years ago I lived just 0.2 miles from where Fred M lives now (Hamilton Road, and three years ago I was visiting regularly the g/f who was living in? Yep, Underwood Road; Fred) !

LOL, how 'bout that! ;-) ... Its easy to think these coincidences are just too weird, but they're not!

We probably bumped into each other at the butchers on Riverside (we had one of the best butchers in the country - his sausages won awards internationally LOL, - As in, unlike almost all other sausages, they were really worth buying) or at Nick's (one of the best fish+chips in the country - Alas Nick died about 8 years ago)... Or perhaps if you are into walking, I spent many hours in Stoke park woods.. Had been left looking after an ex girlfriends old english sheepdog and her cat, and I had a cat left by my ex-wife.. And we ALL used to spend hours going for walks in the woods together! Quite often I had my 3 young daughters with me as well, so we were a crowd a lot of people remember and still comment on ;-) Particularly the 2 cats and dog .. as apparently its unusual for cats to go on outings like that .. I have been in Underwood Rd since 1984..

But not for much longer I hope (and fear).

Fred.

(oh, I worked about a mile from Liss about 10 years ago)

Is a "meet-up" feature something you'd want to see on the site?  We used to have a map a LONG time ago where people could insert pins to show where they lived.  I can bring that back if you'd like.  We might also be able to integrate somehow with meetup.com.

I'm in Sammamish, Washington, on the left coast of the USA.
