The theramin is really just screaming because it doesn't like to be touched, so the closer you get the higher pitched it screams.

(I'm kidding btw)

Ok just curious here, but this seems like the perfect instrument for people with a really good ear for music??? Like it seems like it's such an innate instrument. I want to try it so bad.

Did she say that thing has been around for 100 years? I've never heard of it until today lol!

40 years ago I came up with this idea:
So if you take the output of a theremin and plug it into a vocoder,
you will be able to play "air zones" where only distinct notes of a key
are played. This greatly simplifies hitting a note for the beginner.
Foot peddles can then provide any vibrato that you desire.
Sweeping your hand through the pitch field would sound like
sweeping your finger across a piano keyboard.
Of course, there would be options to select any key...
...chromatic, major, minor, blues, whatever.
At the time I invented this idea, we didn't have adequate
computers or software, and I had to finish college....

I legitimately thought it was an elaborate joke and Carolina was just humming everything in the first 5 seconds of the video.
