Installations

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.

*** If you are interested in hiring us for an event or buying Theremin Bollards please contact us   Below is a varied selection of installations with Theremin Bollards.

The Strong Museum, USA

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”

N/O/D/E

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.

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.
