Yes, Kip and Kevin are two of the best. Clara Rockmore was fantastic too. The Theremin is more than a sound effects gizzmo, it's a very expressive instrument around the right hands. _________________ --Howard

Re: Clara Rockmore
I recently bought Ohm: The Early Gurus of Electronic Music Special Edition 3CD + DVD. A great collection. There, I saw for the first time, Clara Rockmore performing at the theremin It's truly shocking. You have to see it to believe it. Perfect intonation It's like magic. You can not appreciate the instrument only listening to it. Unbelievable, fantastic, I'm in awe
I've had this on my list on Netflix for quite some time, and was curious to find out how good (or not) it was. Glad to get an endorsement.
BTW If you are interested in seeing /hearing Clara play, there's a CD of her (mostly) music available from the Moog Music web page, as well as a VHS documentary which has some clips of her in it: Theremin An Electronic Odyssey _________________ Free Tibet.
