A brush with sound

Dorit Chrysler, virtuoso of the theremin

Dorit Chrysler is an Austrian born, New York based musician who plays the theremin. Difficult to play and almost impossible to master, the theremin is unique in that it generates sound without any direct touch by the musician. When played well, it’s a feat of both physics and art.

Chrysler will be performing this week with the New York Theremin Society. You can see them at Joe’s Pub on December 12th.
