It's hard to believe, but the theremin is 100 years old! The exact date of the theremin's invention is unknown, but historians place it somewhere between late 1919 and early 1920.
Leon Theremin, a pioneer of science and sound, had a happy accident while working in his Soviet lab developing new ways to measure the density of gas. He decided to add an audio tone. Theremin was soon making waves bringing this futuristic new instrument – played without touch – to amazed audiences around the world.
Without the theremin, we would not have the rich sounds that we call music today. Today, it’s making bigger waves than ever.
