The latest release of Timeless Sonic Factory, the creature of long-time thereminist Maurizio “ErMan” Mansueti, is a beautiful, intense, and captivating theremin concept album. In addition to putting the theremin at center stage, it shows it in a new light.
Zenaide Hanenfeldt was one of Leon Theremin’s first associates in the United States. She played a leading role, from 1929 to 1934, in the American adventure of Leon Theremin, appearing in some of the most important theremin events of the period and experiencing a brief period of intense and ephemeral celebrity as a theremin diva. Later, she almost disappeared into oblivion, confined to stingy annotations in the history of the theremin. Let’s find out a little more about her.
Katica Illényi is an artist of many talents. She plays the violin, sings, tap dances, and plays the theremin. We had the pleasure of asking her some questions.
