Theremin Concert at the Music Gallery

Saw Carolina Eyck play the theremin at the Music Gallery. Guests Gregory Oh (piano and Hammond organ), James Mason (oboe) and composer D. Andrew Stewart (karlax) with the Penderecki Quartet! New pieces by Stewart and Omar Daniel. All ridiculously cool. No haunted house music here—I was amazed at its versatility.

The karlax is about a hundred years older than the theremin. Da Fact makes the digital instrument that can reproduce recorded speech, sound effects and music that is affected by gesture. Very interesting development of this century's musical landscape.
