|Full Owl Theremin view|
David Cranmer, from Nervous Squirrel built this very cool Theremin with an Owl that can move up and down..
From the website:
" This was commissioned by Scott Williams, who got in touch to express his love of both owls and theremins. Surely the two could be combined somehow?
|View without case|
The final unit consisted of a geometric timber log on a steel stand, a classic analogue pitch & volume theremin, and a motorised system to raise the owl from within the casing.
The image on the right show the casing removed.
The theremin is in fact an excellent PAiA Theremax, the same as used for the Badgermin.
The owl rests on a sliding carriage, which can slide along four vertical bars fixed inside the log.
When the carriage reaches the top, a limit switch is automatically pressed, switching off the motor.
|Volume antenna loop with|
The antennae disconnect for ease of transportation, and the lower half of the stand can be unbolted. The owl variety is a Southern Boobok."

" This was commissioned by Scott Williams.
The theremin control voltage outputs can be used to play the synth in the background.

When they ask why did you build a stuffed owl theremin I do actually need a proper answer. "Its funny" May not cut it
