The theremin is an electronic instrument invented in 1920. Here's a good YouTube clip of one being played.

Great portrait of an artist at work, I've seen one of these being used before, it was mind blowing and fascinating.

@Zorilla: Good good good good vibrations. Thanks, Zorilla!
Love the composition and the topic. You stirred my interest in this instrument as I did not know what it was called - now I'm fascinated!

A fantastic street shot, Damon, capturing the mood and detail so perfectly in mono. The shadow of his body on the wall and the people talking behind add so much to the composition. Feels like a train station or similar. First class photography.

Theremins are extremely cool, and that a busker is using it is even cooler. Nice portrait.
