Electronic music is older than you may think. Enter the theremin - a device that turns your body into part of a capacitor, and allows you to play music without even touching an instrument!
Special thanks to Jay Bruns of nojayart.com for lending us his theremin, and Mike Emmons for setting up our meeting.
Hosted by: Hank Green
