I'm really just looking for some good vibes from everyone. This is only my second gig on theremin ever, and I am thrilled to be playing amongst artists and fellow musicians alike. The gig will take place at the Patricia Chandler Memorial Gallery at Ohio University Chillicothe campus this evening at 7:00 p.m. I really saw no reason to post this sooner as I'm sure no one on here is in the area but me...hope I'm wrong! And sorry for the late notice.

I will be doing a program of jazz standards with my friend, Ryan, on electric guitar. I do lots of singing as well, as that is my primary instrument that I studied in college, and I like to accompany myself. THAT was rough learning at first, but is now quite second nature since I hav been accompanying myself on piano for over a decade.

Anyhoo, wish me luck! :)


(If you think about it, this kind of looks like a theremin...)

I'm looking forward to hearing the mp3's on your myspace site.

Have a great time, and play your socks off!

Thanks, Gordon. It went very well, from what I could tell. And of everyone in the crowd was spellbound anyway, as most people in rural Ohio have never heard of the theremin. There was a little boy there who came up afterwards with his mother and took pictures of him experimenting with the pitch and volume rods. I will have to post when I get copies. I know that there were a couple of spots in faster passages where my pitch was not perfectly centered, but I was able to correct my mistakes quickly, and that's the key. Now I am working on a small repertoire of pieces to share at Without Touch.
