‘The man who invented electroniс music is about to die. His name is Lev Theremin and he is almost 100 years old. He dedicated all his life to creating things from thin air: first electronic instrument, interlaced video signal, drones, automatic doors and acoustic spying devices. Now, he is obsessively working on the problem of immortality.’
A research and development performance of a uniquely personal journey through the life of one of electronic music’s first pioneers. Audience are invited to enter the life of Lev Theremin, initially as Lenin, then as Theremin himself, through a series of immersive spaces culminating in a virtual world experienced by 3D glasses.
