Picture Perfect Now on Saturday: Theremins!

the_thing_tiomkin_soundtrack.jpg

We all know the sound. That crazy, trilled, electronic whistle that dips into a whoop. Or it starts in a trough and shoots up into the super stratosphere. It’s the sound of UFOs and mad science. It’s the sound of the theremin.  Thrill to its distinctive, extraterrestrial timbre in selections from “The Thing” (Dimitri Tiomkin), “Ed Wood” (Howard Shore), “Rocketship X-M” (Ferde Grofé), and “Spellbound” (Miklós Rózsa).  Make contact with the theremin – an instrument played without physical touch – this Saturday at 6 pm.

Ross Amico is program host, and host of Picture Perfect which airs Saturdays at 6 pm and The Lost Chord which airs Sundays at 10 pm.
