After a very successful 2017 with academies in Lausanne, Leipzig, Colmar, Oxford, and very intense theremin chamber music days near Liverpool, we finished the year with an anniversary academy in Lippstadt. The big highlight was the final concert at the Jacobi church, where we had 20 theremins playing together, from Bach to improvised and experimental music!
We’ll continue the academy tour in 2018 with a little change: The Leipzig academy moves over to Berlin. Out of that, we’re naturally always looking to improve the offer, which makes that besides the “big” academies, one-day Theremin workshops will be held in Oxford, and there are plans to extend the chamber music / Theremin ensemble work.
Our teachers crew, Lydia Kavina, Carolina Eyck, Wilco Botermans, and Thierry Frenkel with occasional help by Dorit Chrysler and Thorwald Jørgensen has grown, too.
We welcome Coralie Ehinger who besides continuing her classic Theremin studies has become a veritable CV and analogue Synthesizer expert, and who starts sharing her excellent knowledge in interfacing the Theremin with the world of Synthesizers offering workshops during this year’s academy in Lausanne.
In 2017, we are having again many events, please visit the list of all upcoming academies. We are updating that list continuously as individual registration becomes available. Thus, if you can’t (yet) find the event you are interested in, please check back soon. Actually, there are academies planned in Lausanne (CH) in February, in Leipzig (D) in April, in Colmar (F) in July, in Oxford (UK) in August, and finally a huge celebration for the tenth anniversary of the “Without Touch” festivals in Lippstadt (D) in November.
