Video Game Theremin

Ever heard of the theremin? It is one of the strangest instruments ever created. It is fully electronic and is the only instrument that depends on the person's proximity to it to play the notes. There are no strings or keys to press! Few are the people who venture into the weird world of the theremin. It is no wonder that a geeky instrument such as this is used by some to play video game music. Here is Zelda music on the theremin:

There are a bunch of other neat theremin videos around. If you want to hear more, check these ones out for starters:

Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy"

Final Fantasy X - To Zanarkand

Don't Worry, Be Happy


Fernando, why don't you try this instrument? After all, it shouldn't be to difficult to someone that already plays several instruments (including Guitar Hero :p).

A wonderful sounding instrument. It has such a fine electronic tune. Keep showing more music

What a strange but extremely interesting instrument! I had never seen anything like it!
