The Theremin Circle is the Grand Finale. It will start at 17:20 and end at 18:00. There will be twenty thereminists involved.
There will also be an interactive theremin installation, consisting of sixteen custom units designed and built by Fred Mundell of Fundamental Designs Ltd. http://www.fundamental-designs.com/
The interactive theremin installation will remain in use for the week of the Ether Festival, both for the public to interact with, and for various electronic musicians to connect their effects and synths to during the week.
