What prompted you to play theremin? 

I was impressed by his wonderful sound … and the charm of playing “air”.

What were your first feelings when you heard the sounds of theremin and where did it happen?

I saw for the first time on TV .. and I immediately fell in love with him …

What is your musical philosophy and what place it occupies a theremin? 

Music is my life: is my passion and my work … I began playing the violin at 4 years … I started to play the theremin only 7 months ago … but now it’s really essential!

Prospects for theremin and its place in modern music space – how you see them? For what qualities you value this tool?

When you think of the theremin, you immediately think of the music sci-fi. But I think the theremin can be used for all types of music: rock, pop, jazz, experimental music … his greatest quality is that, if exploited to its full potential, it is a very versatile tool.

Which manufacturer of theremin do you prefer? 

 Moog!
