    When i think Theremin I think John Spencer Blues Explosion.

    In particular this performance:

    Nothing really, all that happens is that the sound stops that's all.


    Back in the 50's when all those B-Grade Sci Fi movies were being made, the Theremin was extensively used to create all those other-worldly spooky sounds, I seem to remember watching Lost In Space on TV when I was younger, great show, I've also watched the original black and white version of The Day The Earth Stood Still, another classic B-Grade Sci Fi from the 50's.
