[TECH] Music from Electrons -

[TECH] Music from Electrons - Julie sent this my way: Electronic Musical Instruments 1870 - 1990. It's a history of electronic music. Among the interesting instruments are the theremin and the theremin cello. I'd never heard of a theremin cello before. Kinda neat!

For those unfamiliar with the theremin, it's that instrument you hear in those old horror and sci-fi movies that almost sounds like an organ but it makes a continuous, haunting, howling noise. Or you can just here what it sounded like.
