The Theremin…
In this orchestra, there is a woman who is playing an instrument called the Theremin.
It is a quantum instrument played solely by the energy from one’s hands. The instrument creates a magnetic field which is played without being touched and emits a sound which resembles the human voice.

The thereminist stands in front of the instrument and moves his or her hands in the proximity of two metal antennas. The distance from one antenna determines frequency (pitch), and the distance from the other controls amplitude (volume). …

The theremin uses the heterodyne principle to generate an audio signal. This instrument is notoriously difficult to master. The Theremin was invented by Leo Theremin, a Russian who, in 1920, presented it to Vladimir Illich Ulianov, alias Lenin. Lenin was so impressed by its sound; he ordered 600 instruments to be produced. Lenin sent Leo on a voyage to introduce this instrument to the world. Only three countries in the world have music schools that teach the Theremin – Russia, Japan and Ireland.

Listen, it’s original and beautiful.
