The the­re­min was inven­ted in 1920 by the Rus­si­an Lev Ter­men (the name­sa­ke of the lev pro­ject). The sounds of this ground­brea­king elec­tro­nic musi­cal instru­ment are con­trol­led wit­hout tou­ch­ing the instru­ment. The the­re­min has always impres­sed the audi­ence becau­se of this almost magi­cal way of playing. 

The the­re­min is not an easy instru­ment to learn, but wit­hout a doubt it is worth the effort!
