Pamelia Stickney is our guest this week. Who is Pamelia Stickney, you may ask? Well smartypants, she’s a virtuoso on the theramin. She’s so good, in fact, that Bob Moog asked her to help him design HIS version of the theramin!
She tells us how she began playing the instrument, what affects it when you play (like being licked by a puppy), and since she moved to Austria, how to travel with it. She also talks about taking this wild, futuristic instrument that has been the soundtrack to countless sci-fi movies, into new territories by using effects pedals and other tricks. She’s played with some amazing artists, as well; like Yoko Ono, David Byrne, Bela Fleck, and so many more.
