Improvisations for theremin & effects + flutes & voice
More haunting ambient theremin adagios.
Five years after my last album of solo theremin flights, I returned to record some more. This was mostly as I had a couple of concerts arranged for solo theremin and effects, one of which was opening for the legendary prog rock group The Enid. I also had siggned up to attend my 4th Theremin Academy event in London.
I ahd been playing theremin with Memory Wire, Audible Light and most often in my monthly electronic improvisation nights Quadelectronic., but I hadn't done much solo work with it.
I set in my studio with a view to rehearsing for the concerts, and thought it best to record everything to act as a kind of audience. It took a while to get back the mix of control, boldness and clear thinking, and when I recorded it I thought no more about it, not intending to release them. But when I listened back a few days later I was cheered to notice the subtle refinements that had come from 5 years of playing.
