To all of you thereminists, theremin enthusiasts, electro-musicians and electronic music lovers the world over…

Juliet Shaw was a concert pianist and thereminist whose performing career spanned from the early 1930s through the late 1980s. Yet, she’s barely mentioned anywhere online or in theremin literature. Her extraordinary legacy has never been fully explored or documented.

That’s all about to change.

During the past six months I’ve been collaborating with Sandra, Juliet Shaw’s daughter. Now, for the first time in over seventy years, Juliet Shaw’s vast legacy will finally see the light of day.

And you can be a part of making it happen.
