Post So...I got a theremin!!!
Looking forward to making some creepy tunes with it. Are there any metal bands you can think of that have used this instrument? Any of you play one?

I remember when Green Carnation played here years ago, they replaced the vocal middle section of LODDOD with a theremin jam. It was excellent. At the time I had no idea what it is, and that made it all the more fun.

I want one some day to fuck around with and record some trippy soundscapes and samples ...Realistically though, it'll be a while before I go for it due to other gear priorities. =/

Ghoul does stuff with one. At the risk of sounding discouraging, these things are very nearly impossible to play well; there have only ever been a handful of theremin masters.

I can imagine. That's exactly why I wanna use it for sampling purposes moreso than live performing :lol:

Still, it's gotta be pretty fun experimenting with it. It'd be really cool to actually get decent at it eventually.

They also use it in their song "Maybe" on "The Acoustic Verses."

That band was just way bad ass.
