Theremidi Orchestra (TO) allows itself to be fascinated by the unpredictable experimental sounds coming from home-made instruments. At jams and workshops they explore and produce sounds with the help of DIY gadgets, antennas, conductive ink, umbrellas, wire ducklings, air tubes or scrap metal.
Theremidi Orchestra (verb) was founded after a three-day theremin and theremidi physical interface workshop at Ljubljana Digital Media Lab – Ljudmila in May 2011 under the mentorship of Cirkulacija 2’s Borut Savski, who later also briefly joined the line-up.
The fascination for the electromagnetic sound waves grew into exploring and producing sounds with the help of DIY gadgets, antennas, conductive ink, umbrellas, wire ducklings, air tubes, flowers, and scrap metal. The live acts — indoors and outdoors — are more similar to an experiment-seeking interventions, ongoing workshops or performances rather than conventional musical concerts.
The hands-on electro noise ensemble exists in the present continuous, but refers also to the history of electronic music, while the number of members varies from eight to ten, sometimes even twelve. Theremidi Orchestra has its very own Female Section.
