On November, 21, Erarta Museum will host the master class of playing the theremin and concert by Dorit Chrysler.
Invented 1919 by Russian electro physicist Lev Sergejewitch Termen, the Theremin generates sound without being touched. Notoriously hard to play, it is one of the first electronic instruments that inspired the creation of synthesizers in future generations.
Dorit Chrysler has been dubbed a superior wizard of the Theremin. An Austrian-born, New Yorkbased composer and musician, she has studied Musicology in Vienna before she cofounded the NY Theremin Society to create an educational community platform for Theremin Enthusiasts, which has been featured recently in the Wall Street Journal, Fox News, CBS News and Al Jazeera America. Her dark compositions have been used in TV and Movies, such as Lars Van Triers *Riget* She co-produced the Ten Piece Theremin Orchestra performing at LA Disney Hall and founded the KidCoolThereminSchool. Dorit has performed at MoMA, Lincoln Center, Roskilde Festival, Moogfest, Coachella, LA Disney Hall, Vienna Konzerthaus & Tesla Museum in Belgrade. Her compositions have been featured at the MoMA. the Hermitage St. Petersburg and the most recent Venice Biennale.
The master class will begin at 18:00. The concert "Sounds of Ether. The Theremin's Journey Through History" starts at 20:00. The ticket includes both events.
Free for Erarta Society card holders.
The event is supported by Austrian Federal Chancellery, Austrian Cultural Forum Moscow and NCCA Moscow.
