Very nice asterix2k10!  It's a tough instrument to master.

I also have been playing Ave Maria lately, maybe a week or so on and off, and you've encouraged me to record it (link).  Am currently noodling around with "Danny Boy".

I am still working on this song but now I'm playing on a Moog Etherwave with ESPE01. I like the tone of the modified Etherwave but it's hard for me to play right now. Nonetheless I recorded this:

I'm hoping to get better at playing this theremin and this song!

In front of a camera you're probably doing better than me!  I tend to freeze up with just the audio recorder running... I suppose playing the Theremin isn't automatic enough for me yet.

I'm struck by how sensitive your EW is, the tiniest movements cause large pitch changes, though this is normal for analog Theremins.  Have you tried sitting down to play in order to better steady yourself?
