Beatboxing with the world’s oldest electronic instrument…

Having made music a few months ago with a bike wheel and a walkman, now click here to check out the latest not-so-typical instrument beatboxer Adam Matta (C’96) is using to create music!

Have you ever heard of a theremin? Neither have I.

Per Adam, “A theremin is the world’s oldest electronic instrument, invented by Leon Theremin in Russia, 1919. It is played not by touching it, but simply by moving one’s hands near the antennae, which create electromagnetic fields that are interrupted by the user’s hands.”
