The "Roll Call" thread has been a tradition for many years here at Theremin World. Each year, we invite new members to introduce themselves to the theremin community. Let us know how you learned about the theremin, which theremins you own (or want), and what you hope to accomplish with it.
This year, to put a different spin on things, I'm inviting all current members to reintroduce themselves too! Let us know how far you've come on your theremin quest since we first met you.
And to all - a Happy New Year!
Name is Morgan, I'm a musician / studio owner from Brooklyn. I make music under the name Chrome Canyon, and am a longtime fan (and aspiring player) of the Theremin.
I've found a lot of useful info up here and thought I'd say hi!
I have an Etherwave that I modified with a simple circuit that allows for smoother playing and extended low end. I use it live, and sometimes in the studio when I get a chance. :)
Very glad to be a part of this little community of theremin lovers. And happy new year!
Hi, I'm Gordon, and I've been hanging around here for just over seven years. When I got my first theremin it did not take me long to realise that I was not cut out to be a melodic thereminist, so I set myself the different challenge of discovering how I could use the theremin as an instrument of experimental, electronic music.
I am so glad I did! Over the years it has taken me to many different countries and let me meet hundreds if not thousands of lovely people and brilliant musicians, not to mention all the fun gigs and a few albums. (Find me at all good digital outlets, I record and perform as Beat Frequency.)
it is incredibly hard to pick one recording, but here is one anyway...
Hello. Roy here and I have been a member of this forum for 4 or 5 months-ish?
I have an Athur Harrison 145 theremin and am fairly happy with it.
New to the theremin world and am very happy to be here amongst like minded folks:-)
I realise that as with most other instruments, the further one explores it, the more difficult it can become to understand and play so I hope to at least play it to some level of competance some day!
I've long had an interest in the theremin, but only after forming my current band(about a year ago) did I find the gumption to finally get one. I thought we needed to find ways to fill more sonic space, so I figured I could fill some by playing theremin with the head of my bass guitar. It's worked pretty well(many thanks here to my effect pedals!), but it opened the floodgates as to learning about, and learning to play the thing proper. I'm happy to have landed here:)
Looking back to 2008, my recordings began to come together in a steady kind of progress with my home-built Theremax featured prominently. There are videos of my work on Youtube and Vimeo, and there are digital downloads at SoundCloud and Bandcamp, of which a few tracks have had some steady interest over the years.
My training (MFA from SMU, Dallas, Tx) is in the visual and 'plastic' arts, so the way I make music is informed by this. I like to learn as I go, so thank you everyone who takes the time to look or listen.
Charles Richard Lester here, just your garden variety "church basement thereminist" who plays mostly for my own amazement, although I've had some pretty grand theremin adventures over the years since first discovering the instrument in 1995 via Steven M. Martin's documentary Theremin: An Electronic Odyssey.

Hi! I'm Matt. I live in DC and work as a journalist during the day and a church singer at night. I play piano, a bit of guitar, and ukulele.
I've known about the theremin for years, but only recently did I get the urge to purchase one. I picked up a Burns B3 Deluxe about three weeks ago. Having read every thread on here about aerial fingering, and watched what seemed like every theremin video on the Internet, I was confident.
Anyway, I'm still figuring things out, and in the meantime I am posting YouTube videos to show my progress. Here's the latest. Please don't be too critical. Helpful suggestions are, of course, welcome and encouraged. :-) I look forward to getting to know you all!
