Alexander Thomas plays the theremin

by Chris Bertram on December 6, 2008

My son Alex, who plays under the name Alexander Thomas (“myspace page”: , plays the “theremin”: (and then puts the output through various electronic boxes). As well as playing various gigs round the country, he’s also just had “a session on BBC Radio Bristol’s BBC Bristol Introducing programme”: . He plays three pieces as well as talking a little bit about the instrument (the first is just after 30 minutes in). The session should be available for the next seven days.

Any discussion of Obama’s assiduous tracking of the thereminist vote in the US election?

Gorgeous sounds! A real intelligence playing, what a joy, you got reason to be a proud poppa.

It was delightful to hear him in the context of the rest of that music show. (Did they call his theremin, in tones of awe mixed with whimsy a “whanging big wooden box?”) He has a good personal spirit, obviously, in addition to musical gifts.
