This thread is a "virtual birthday card" for Leon Theremin. We celebrate his birthday from August 15th through August 28th due to the change in the Russian calendar from Julian to Gregorian. 

Feel free to post your birthday wishes, videos, and music here to help celebrate!

Ilya I can not evaluate music as a musician as my hearing is poor but there is something in your sine wave sound I find very pleasant.

Happy Birthday Mr. Theremin (wherever you are).  The world is a better place due to your musical and electrical genius.


I like the timbre of your mixer ILYA!

His photo holding a glass of wine, taken during his last visit with Clara Rockmore in New York, hangs on my wall beyond the theremin.

I often look at it and ponder him during tough passages of music and in life.  His invention changed my life, and his survival in the Gulag inspires me and gives me renewed perspective when I need it most.

I'm still celebrating his birthday with the deepest thanks he was born and became the inventor of our instrument.
