What prompted you to play theremin? 

In 2002 I saw a TV documentary about Leon Theremin and was just amazed! I told that to some of my friends and that same summer I got my first theremin as a birthday present.

What were your first feelings when you heard the sounds of theremin and where did it happen? 

See above

What is your musical philosophy and what place it occupies a theremin? 

My goal now is to present the theremin, the worlds first electronic instrument,
to a broader audience – out from the salons of the cultural elite.

Prospects for theremin and its place in modern music space – how you see them? For what qualities you value this tool? 

 As above. I’d like to popularize the instrument for a more broader use, not only effects in pop or as a classical instrument for “arty” music.

Which manufacturer of theremin do you prefer? 

. Moog

What you can recommend for beginners thereminists, or those who are just going to start their way of thereminist? 

Buy a Standard Etherwave Moog theremin and practice, practice, practice..
