learn the theremin

The smem invites the interested public to learn to play this fascinating instrument. The 1.5 hour introductory course is offered by Charly Hobbs. Charly Hobbs, who built this instrument in New York and is now based in Fribourg, will teach you the basics of the theremin and how to play this fascinating instrument. Each participant will have a theremin, some of them from the smem collection.

The Lausanne-based artist Coralie Ehinger will take her audience to listen and understand the playing of the Theremin during an educational concert illustrated by images and interspersed with explanations, notably on her use of the Theremin as a controller to modulate synthesizers.  An international specialist of this instrument, she transmits her passion through movements and sounds that reveal this marvel sometimes forgotten by the general public.
