Join us for this free concert featuring one of the world's most unique musical instruments. The Etherphonic Theremin Orchestra, formed in 2016 by director Barry R. Morse, is a unique ensemble comprised entirely of eight space-controlled theremin instruments. Players control the instruments and follow the director's hand signals in order to perform specific musical gestures leading to group-improvised soundscapes sculpted in real time by the director and performers together.
The Etherphonic Theremin Orchestra will perform during PYGMALION: TECH DEMO.
As PYGMALION enters its 13th year, it remains one of the most culturally creative events in Champaign-Urbana and downstate Illinois. The ever-expanding offerings have grown to include music, technology, literature, food, and maker components. Krannert Center hosts the festival a full day including headlining musicians (Thundercat, Julien Baker, and more), a reading from acclaimed author George Saunders, a full tech DEMO, Share the Vision, Human Library, and more.
