We continue to promote and embed our ethos as we tour the Theremin Bollards nationally and globally. Our aim is to install devices in every continent and to share what we have learned with the world. Devices are currently installed in The Science Museum as part of the Wonderlab exhibit and in the Strong Museum, Rochester USA.

We are proud to have provided two Theremin Bollards to the National Science Museum, London. Wonderlab, a cutting edge interactive gallery is hugely popular with visitors. Something we hoped that one day we could make happen! Did. Filmed during the launch event for Wonderlab Bill Bailey, comedian, played on a Theremin Bollard. What a lovely guy. Thanks Bill.

Our first permanent installation, thanks to the Strong Museum in New York state. This is from one of the museum technicians “The Theremin was a smash hit! It withstood the rigors of our harsh environment, including a few kids “planking” and trying to break dance on top of it”
Theremin Bollards were thrilled to be invited to the esteemed Yorkshire Sculpture park for a 3 day exhibition in August 2014. With the Theremin Bollard project originating in Yorkshire this installation was one of our favourites so far. This exhibition included a performance day, interactive day and meet the artist day. Below are some images from the 3 days.

Lausanne, Switzerland Jan2016 A new player in the Swiss cultural landscape (on the French-speaking side), the N/O/D/E is dedicated to sound oddities, focusing on unusual instruments, forgotten sounds, bizarre music and the correlation between past and present.
The Theremin is its emblem. It proposes occasional open-minded and playful events in the French-speaking part of Switzerland to discover, listen to or reflect upon the musical wealth of various microcosms, far away from the beaten path.
Hands Off 2015
Is an event with and around Theremins held on September 26th, 2015 from 10:00AM to 07:00PM in Poulton Hall, Wirral, UK. Theremin, named after its inventor Leon Theremin, a Russian physicist, inventor, and musician, was created in 1919 as one of the very first electronic music instruments. The use of electromagnetic fields around two antennas allows to play it without actually touching it.
Based on our performative event at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, we allowed the audience to become lead player in the performance. From the reaction of the audience it was another fantastic event! By both, band and audience. Check out members of the audience performing with a Dub Barn Collective.
We installed in the amazing Glasgow centre for this one day event to celebrate music in the UK. The event was televised and broadcast on BBC1 the One Show. BBC Scotland
