Synthesize me

Whilst browsing the internet I stumbled across an intriguing theremin player from Mississippi USA who offers theremin lessons via Skype. The distance between the tutor, instrument(s) and myself I consider an interesting thought.

The theremin is the only musical instrument you play without touching although it does rely on physical presence of the body to voice its sound. It uses capacitive sensing just like modern day mobile phones and has a parallel to Wi-Fi that also works at the hand of proximity. A work regarding electronic presence, the material and the immaterial body and our movement between these two.
