CLARA ROCKMORE , THE THEREMIN & GOOGLE


yaoikan1981



A strange and melancholic music I once heard long ago in some old movie had haunted me forever.
The name of the song was always a secret to me until this morning when Google posted an Interactive Animation Doodle for the 105th Birthday of Clara Rockmore, the Theremin performer.

Now I know the name of the music, the strange and alien but captivating sound made by the Theremin and the lovely player, Clara Rockmore (1911 - 1998 ), the first performer to "bring complete musical artistry to the theremin".


The song you hear on Google's animation is called "The Swan" from  suit "The Carnival of Animals " by  Saint -Saens.
Another musical piece by Saint-Saens I love very much is "Aquarium " from the movie "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button". Now I need to go on a hunt and see if I can find the movie I first heard "The Swan" played on the Theremin.

 If not for Google, I still would be in the dark. Happy chance I played the game this morning and got an early Birthday gift, my birthday is tomorrow. Thanks, Google!!!
