What prompted you to play theremin?

I first saw it payed by Jean Michele Jarre — and I was like ” what IS that ? “
so I bought one. I fell SO in love with it instantly , that I abandoned my 9 other musical instruments to devote ALL my attention to it.

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

I didn’t believe it. Then I loved it.

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

That the Theremin is the only instrument that you can literally pull music out of thin air . That’s still my strongest impression/love for it

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

The theremins place in modern music is 2 fold. first , to perform music the audiences recognize , second , to bring it into new , uncharted musical territory. ( Lydia is doing that now )

Which manufacturer of theremin do you prefer?

I am endorsed by MOOG — so I have to say MOOG.

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

Lots of practice to develop your own style. No 2 theremin styles are alike.
