MOOG Etherwave Theremin User's Manual

SETTING UP AND PLAYING THE MOOG MUSIC® ETHERWAVE® THEREMIN

INTRODUCTION

The theremin is an electronic musical instrument played by the free movement of the performer's hands in the space surrounding it. This method of playing gives the theremin tone its unique ethereal and dramatic quality, while at the same time allowing the performer a measure of artistic freedom that other musical instruments do not offer. The techniques of playing the theremin can be mastered by anyone who has a good musical ear, and who is willing to invest a modest amount of practicing time. Two motions are involved. Movement of the right hand toward the pitch antenna controls pitch, while movement of the left hand toward the volume antenna controls loud­ness or volume.

The Moog Music ETHERWAVE theremin is powered by a special adapter which plugs into a standard 110- 125 volt grounded power outlet or alternatively a 220 volt supply is also available. It is designed to operate with a wide range of amplifier-speaker combinations.

PREPARING THE ETHERWAVE THEREMIN FOR PLAYING

If you've purchased the ETHERWAVE theremin kit, please turn to the section on Assembling Your ETHERWAVE Theremin Kit at the end of this manual.

A) PLACING THE INSTRUMENT ON A STAND:

The ETHERWAVE theremin requires either a standard microphone stand (preferred) or a small table 36" to 42" high. If a table is used, no objects on the table should be within a foot or two of the theremin, and the theremin itself should be positioned so that the the volume antenna will overhang the edge of the table. Whichever type of stand is used, the ETHERWAVE should be securely mounted, and away from walls and other large stationary objects. Large objects located close to the volume antenna will silence the instru­ment's output.

B) ATTACHING THE TWO ANTENNAS:

The pitch antenna, which is the long straight tube, is placed in the elbow (right angle) fitting on the right end of the instrument, with the brass compression ring down. The mounting nut is slipped over the an­tenna and screwed onto the fitting. The nut need be only finger-tight, but should be tight enough so that the antenna is firmly in place.
