Theremin: An Electronic Odyssey synopsis

This documentary explores the life of Leon Theremin, the inventor of an electronic synthesizer called the theremin, which uses motion to produce a sliding ethereal sound. After creating the instrument, Theremin is kidnapped by the KGB to work on inventions and surveillance technology. During his absence, the theremin becomes a popular instrument in film scores and through the performances of Clara Rockmore. In 1991, Theremin finally returns to the United States after his release.
