Wondrous Words Wednesday

March 16, 2016

I found one word in Be Frank With Me by Julia Claiborne Johnson.

1. theremin – “She shepherded him out to me without touching him once, a tour de force performance worthy of a theremin virtuoso.”

A theremin is an early electronic instrument controlled without physical contact by the thereminist.  I found this video of a theremin performance fascinating.


What words do you want to celebrate today?

    I was listening to the audio of Be Frank with Me and didn’t catch that word at the time. Fascinating word and instrument!

    That song always gets to me, and the video really is remarkable! Theremin and thereminist are new-to-me terms.
