"ive seen it before, it works off a weak magnetic field that comes from people, so it changes depending on where you put your hands above it."

These are some awesome comments. Some of them made me laugh very hard, especially that one about the vomit in the keyboard. Anybody that actually spend even a minute to read about the theremin knows its one of the most difficult instruments to play. KT Tunstall sounds great! Can she play the theremin too? :)

Theremin = cool.
"Don`t Worry, Be Happy" = grotesque.
Dude doing both = mentalcase.
Me watching the whole clip = vomit in my keyboard.

That guy is horrible. Learn to play before making a video showing the world what a theremin can do.

Ooh, two-handed Theremin playing--that`s pretty difficult. As you can see, his left hand controls the volume and his right controls the pitch. There are some great Theremin players out there and great bands which incorporate this instrument, be sure to look it up!

Yes, now that I know a bit more about the instrument I am quite impressed, I imagine that would take a lot of practice.

wow thats amazing just look at the technological age we live in... imagine a whole orchestra of people just moving their hands and making music... wow and what if the impliment this stuff into vehicles, control your car just by swooping your hand, no steering wheel needed.... wow (but this might cause more accidents when people accidently make a hand movement...)

This song was played on a Theremin. It is an instrument controlled by hand movements around oscilating frequency modilators. For muuch more information check out this site. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theremin

OK, I`m lost. Seemed to me like he was just dubbing his voice and playing it back on a click track to get all the parts. What was that black doohickey in front of him? Never seen one of those before. Anyway, it was pretty cool, but not cool enough for me to sit through the whole thing. When he`s off key during the high harmony it makes my toenails curl lol.
