The haunting and ethereal sounds of the theremin, an unusual electronic instrument invented in 1920, are made without the performer ever touching the instrument. Jason Smeltzer performs and demonstrates how this "untouchable music" is created by moving your hands to control pitch and volume between two antennas. Held in the beautiful ambience of the Museum's Marble Court.
