備考 Musical progidy Clara Rockmore became the most virtuoso player of the theremin even known. Thremin is an electronic instrument, which is played by using the electromagnetic field of a person's body; two metal antennaes stick out of the instrument, one for pitch and one for volume, and the musician moves their hands around them to produce sound. Although it is a difficult instrument to play well and is has mostly been used for sound effects, Rockmore played classical music on it, sometimes with the accompaniment of a piano or orchestra. Rockmore was a good friend of Russian physicist and theremin inventor Leon Theremin, and he made her a special instrument custom-built for her playing style. SFPALM
