Google Doodle today: Play the theremin with Clara Rockmore
You can also create your own music, after a small tutorial, and share it
Google Doodle today pays a tribute to Clara Rockmore and her theremin. The theremin is an unusual instrument that's controlled by gestures. Essentially, music just plays out of thin air. Rockmore was not only one of the most well-known theremin performers, she also helped develop it.
Also, today's doodle is the fourth in the series of Google's interactive games, and the second consecutive musical one.
After a small tutorial, you can play the theremin on your computer, create your own music and share it. There are some modifications too, so you can tweak your piece as much as you like before you share it.
This doodle first featured on March 9, 2016 to mark the occasion of Clara Rockmore's 105th birth anniversary.
The doodle features Rockmore playing the theremin to an audience and she also seems to play the theremin as you play your notes on the instrument.
Wednesday's Google Doodle was a musical one too and it a paid a tribute to Oskar Fischinger and his abstract art.
