theremin.org.uk goes live
This is the tale of our Nelly,
a Brit who was watching the telly,
when she saw upon the screen
a most unusual music machine
that made a wondrous, singular sound;
eerie, melodic, mournful, profound.
A theremin. You may have guessed,
but wait until you hear the rest…
As then announced our eager Miss,
“I need to hear some more of this.”
And so she searched the internet,
saying, “I will find a gig. Yet
will I have that much success?
The internet is such a mess!”
But here she had a nice surprise,
for there, sat right before her eyes,
was just a perfect little list
of concerts that she might have missed,
dotted all around the land, and
there was a band quite close to hand.
Well, after she had seen them play,
she bought a theremin next day,
and soon she learned to make it sing.
It took a bit of struggling,
but there was something else she found;
a list of players on home ground.
She met some of her local group,
who helped her with the rod and loop.
And with that boost, that hand, that lift,
she found out that she had the gift!
She’s on the list herself, you know,
and to her concerts you should go,
as an agent also found the list,
and contacted our gifted Miss…
So when you see her, by and by,
take a moment to say hi,
as she’s the famous player, Nelly,
the thereminist from on the telly!
