Infrared Theremin

Brain was part of the Music Marathon on Saturday at Woodland Pattern. It was an electronica-infused event. I was not prepared to be amazed.

Machiavellian Machine is pictured performing below. I tried to get a shot of his theremin-playing hand.

I saw him outside and asked about it. He verified that it was, indeed, a theremin: an infrared one, at that. I didn't think to ask if that was a vocoder on his microphone. Dangit.

Paul Schwarzkopf of the Milwaukee Riverkeeper performed as well (see below). He was the guy with the glowing red eyes in the background, not the guy sweating under the tinfoil hat.
