GOLGOTHA FILM PREMIERE - If you have an opportunity to see this film, by all means grab it! A labor of love by Karla Jean Davis, Golgotha is a visual treat and an aural pleasure. The soundtrack is a gift to theremin afficiandos everywhere. It may possibly contain more theremin music than any other motion picture. Thomas Grillo, Randy George and Kevin Kissinger all contributed to the score.

Thomas Grillo added a great deal to the evening by performing a haunting improv duet for a half hour before the screening. Playing the B3 Pro Theremin, he was accompanied by Joel Patchell on keyboards.

It was a special evening.


B3 DELUXE PLAYER MODIFICATION ALERT!
Barry Schwam provides easy to follow pictorial instructions how to modify the B3 Deluxe Theremin for lefties!

Barry, aka 'Schwump', is a great friend of Burns Theremins and a former member of 'The Residents'. Guaranteed to put a smile on your face, Barry has been making music for decades. If looks like the SchwumpBot is rockin' the B3 Deluxe. Maybe he'll make an appearance on the next CD!

Fondren Guitars, Jackson, MS. As Hurricane Gustav barrelled towards Louisiana, we visited Thomas Grillo during his weekly performance at Fondren Guitars. It was our distinct pleasure to enjoy the jam and meet proprietor Patrick Harkins. If you find yourself in the area on a Saturday afternoon, stop by for a visit and enjoy the music.

The celebration of 40 Years of Star Trek was a great opportunity to introduce theremins to a new generation of musicians, fans and new friends. It was a wonderful experience.


Data's Brother tries his hand playing the Star Trek theme.


Dan built a smokin' robot especially for the event.


This guy is a prodigy! We hope that he continues to play his convention acquired B3 to this day!


We were very fortunate that our booth was located next to Mario, John, Jesse and Travis. Mario Della Casa is a gifted artist. We really enjoyed watching him paint, viewing his art and spending time with our new friends.


*****

The 2006 South Carolina Guitar Expo provided us with a wonderful opportunity to meet theremin owners and collectors. Dan also had fun introducing new, potential players to the art of the theremin. Thanks to everyone who came out and stopped by the booth. It was a great show.

Sci-Fi SummerCon Atlanta has come and gone, but not before Klingons made off with theremins! Interesting people, curious cyborgs and extraterrestials alike claimed their theremins before the weekend was over.



*****

The inaugural Tulsa Guitar and String Show was a huge success. Many theremins now have new homes and Dan performed a stage demonstration on Saturday. We continue to feel honored that we could be a part of what promises to be a great annual event. Dan is already looking forward to participating next year. The organizers have posted a few pictures. Check out the preliminary plans for next year, too.
