Critic Reviews for Theremin: An Electronic Odyssey
Brilliant in moments if also flawed, this is a fascinating chronicle of the man who revolutionized modern music with the world's first electronic instrument; impact on movie scores is one of the docu's best parts.
Watching Theremin: An Electronic Odyssey is a curious experience. You begin with interest, and then you pass through the stages of curiosity, fascination and disbelief, until in the last 20 minutes, you arrive at a state of dumbfounded wonder.
Dad I not known that this was a documentary, I could have convinced myself that this was a Woody Allen comedy about a genius inventor of screwball machines.
Audience Reviews for Theremin: An Electronic Odyssey
A very very cool documentary on the inventor of one of the most imaginative musical instruments ever constructed - the theremin. Known best for being in the background of the Beach Boys' Good Vibrations, the theremin provides an unlikely partner to the composition of both classical and modern works.
A documentary about the creator of the musical instrument, Leon Theremin. It's a story about a man with a passion for electronics and music, a man with an inventive and radical mind. It should come as no surprise that he had a profound influence on the development of electronic music as we know it. The theramin took on a life of its' own. It became the stuff of do-it-yourself kits and a thousand movie soundtracks. You know, that sound that usually accompanies the flying saucer along with the score for The Day The Earth Stood Still? The instrument even co-starred with Jerry Lewis in The Delicate Delinquent. A new generation of fans tested the limits of what a theramin could do, to include The Beach Boys' Brian Wilson and a song we're all too familiar with.
