The Moog Etherwave Theremin is a new instrument that combines the benefits of previous Moog Theremin models, the Etherwave Standard and Etherwave Plus, with new updates. This new model has an amazing five-octave pitch range, increased bass response, and easier playability.
With no reeds to blow, no keys to press, and no strings to pluck, the theremin defies all expectations of a musical instrument. It is instead played in a manner that seemingly conjures music from the ether, simply through the motion of the body when close to the instrument.
To debut the new Etherwave Theremin, Austin-based electronica group The Octopus Project performs their original track “I Saw the Bright Shinies” in a performance filmed in the Moog Sound Lab.
Other artists have debuted this new version as well.
