Just thinking...

If it is a gaggle of geese, a cloud of bats, or a school of fish...

what do you call a collection of theremins?

I propose: A wave of theremins.

Any other suggestions? Just for fun.

My expierience with getting a collection (16) of 'live' Theremins together, and not to interact with each other, makes me think they are comparable to Bonobo's - It is difficult to get them to leave each other alone!

Looking for the term for a collection of monkeys, I find "Troop" and "Tribe".. But these dont seem appropriate..

But that got me thinking - what do you call a collection of Thereminists? ;-) .. They certainly do not seem particularly 'bonobo' like (unless I am missing the fun! ;-)

I like the term "wave" of thereminists... it works on multiple levels. "A wave of thereminists appeared on stage..." yeah!

Either an interference, a whoop, a schpook or a modulation of theremnists.
