The Theremin, a completely touchless electronic instrument played through the placement of the hands around two metal coils, is the first (but surprisingly not the only) Soviet-made electronic instrument. Delving into the underground Soviet culture of synthesizers under Lenin’s rule, Elektro Moskva introduces the world to a hidden subculture of electronic instrument enthusiasts as they recount the history and how they engage contemporaneously. The begging question on my mind is if Hannibal Buress is as talented with these as he is with his instrument of choice (I’m talking about the Theremin. He’s really good at it. Google it.)
