Sean Michaels Wins Prestigious Award for "Us Conductors"

This is a big deal for World Thereminization!

Sean Micheals has won the prestigious Scotiabank Giller prize for his debut work, Us Conductors: A Novel.  The $100,000 prize is the most lucrative literary award in Canada and brings a lot of attention to both Michaels and the theremin. 

Some in the theremin community took offense at the liberties Michaels took with the retelling of the life of Leon Sergeyvich Termen, but Michaels has always been very clear that this is a fictional work inspired by facts.  It's a fun read either way.

Us Conductors is available at in both ebook and physical formats.

Congratulations to Sean Micheals from Theremin World!

Theremin Festival Announced for Dec 4-7 in Houston, TX

14 Pews

Houston art organization 14 Pews has announced a 4 day long theremin festival to be held from December 4-7, 2014!

The 4 day festival will feature several well-known thereminists including Thomas Grillo, Dorit Chrysler, Rob Schwimmer, Armen Ra, and Randy George as well as films and other experimental electronic musicians.  If you've enjoyed their music, videos, and conversations on Theremin World, this is an incredible opportunity to see them perform live and meet them in person!

14 Pews is an independent organization "dedicated to the tradition of storytelling expressed through film, theater, music, dance and the arts."  Director Cressandra Thibodeaux began the program in 2011 to bring the arts to marginalized and underserved communities.  The venue appears to be quaint, taking its name from 14 churn pews in its main auditorium - the perfect place for a theremin festival!
