Avatar Theme on Theremin (I See You)

The Avatar Theme tune – “I See You” played on Theremin.

To celebrate the release of Avatar on Blu-Ray.. this is for all you Avatar fans!
I was inspired by MsFrizzyHair’s Flute cover using the same backing track. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PkY7pVOCgGg
It was stuck in my head for days (I actually prefer it to the sung version), and that usually means you subconciously want to play it! So yes, this is very much a copy of her video, even copying her style of playing (i’m so original, lol) .. But someone had to do it, this works really well on theremin 😀

I’m aware this isnt exactly how it’s sung, I sort of improvised in parts (read.. forgot the actual tune),

Hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed playing this one.

The Theremin is a Moog Etherwave Plus.

The background track was found on clocktower234’s channel on youtube. It’s very impressive!

To Zanarkand on Theremin, Flute, Piano & Guitar

“To Zanarkand” from the Final Fantasy X Soundtrack, performed on Theremin, Flute, Piano & Guitar.
This video features 3 musicians. They are:

Theremin – conquerearth aka ThereminHero (me)

Flute – MsFrizzyHair – http://www.youtube.com/user/MsFrizzyHair

Guitar & Piano – Soda-o-rat – http://www.youtube.com/user/sodaorat

Please comment and rate their videos too, they are extremely talented musicians!

This was not a live performance; these videos were recorded separately and in fact Soda-o-rat’s videos were not originally intended to fit together. The tempos of his tracks were warped to bring everything into a common timeframe. I then played my theremin part along to the resulting combined video, and asked MsFrizzyHair to do the same, to which she very kindly agreed. I am extremely happy with the result!

The theremin used here is a Moog Etherwave Plus.

It’s valentines day, and I have nothing better to do than play theremin, so here’s something appropriate for the occasion. This is probably the least manly thing anyone has ever done, but whatever. Also, this is my first video where i’ve attempted to sing, and my be the last, lol.

Playing along to Anamanaguchi with a Theremin

Playing along to Anamanaguchi with a Theremin!

My favourite section from Track 07 (Mermaid) from Anamanaguchi’s album “Dawn Metropolis”.
Just about nailed it on the third take. Though as you can see from my facial expressions (a strange mix of fear, surprise and relief), I didn’t exactly expect it to turn out well!

Anamanaguchi = win

Let the geekyness continue.. More projects (other than music) to come soon…
