" I have no desire to become the world’s next Clara
Rockmore — I am much more interested in using this experimental instrument experimentally! " — John Cage

Following the invention of Russian physicist Léon Theremin (1896-1993) the work studies operational parameters of terpsitone, an analogue space-played instrument that uses ether waves, electromagnetic fields, and the electrical conduction of the human body. As opposed to the traditional European instrument that involves direct physical contact, terpsitone is played through a virtual field. DANCE CONCERT is a dynamic entanglement, without apparent boundaries, where dancing bodies participate in the process of sound production.
