Happy B-Day Leon Theremin!

Image via Wikipedia.

Just read that he would have been 109 today on Create Digital Music.

Thought I'd put up a link to Wikipedia's article on Leon, but there isn't one! Someone put one up! I did however find one on the theremin with the following pic though. BTW, Bob Moog started with theremins which were always dear to him. When he left the synthesizer business, he started up Big Briar and made theremins. Moog Music still makes em as part of their Etherwave product line.

Update: I'm a loser. Cikira corrected me in that it is Theremin, not Theramin! So I looked up Leon Theremin on Wikipedia and there is a section on him. Funny thing is the link on Wikipedia takes you to the article on the theremin but leaves the address "theramin." I missed it. Also proper etiquette is lower case T for the instrument and upper case for Leon Theremin, and his original Russian name was Lev Sergeivich Termen, anglicized later to Leon Theremin. Sorry Leon. Thanks Cikira! : )
