I didn't get the "Theremin player" quote :embarrassed: so I looked it up on Wikepedia - here's the result:-
 
an early electronic musical instrument controlled without physical contact by the thereminist (performer). It is named after the Westernized name of its Russian inventor, Léon Theremin, who patented the device in 1928

He's a Theremin player....


(how many of you will work that one out!  ok2  )

Yes and no. It occurred to me it looks like he's playing one of those electronic 'wave your hand near the pole' instruments, but didn't understand the Theremin references until Capt Podge's post a couple above.
Doh!

For those who may not know. The Theremin was popularized through Star Trek https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rhw8lk-DUGU
It was used in Series 1 of the original Star Trek. See hear opening credits https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9d6Av-D9A_c
Season 2 they switched to a woman singing.

Perhaps the Theramin was considered too communist and so it was replaced with a good capitalist woman singer!

Them theramins are more complicated than I expected.
