First light a theremin meditation -------------- about Stephen Hamm
Stephen Hamm has been a pivotal member of the Vancouver Music and Arts scene for over 25 years. He’s played in bands like Slow, Canned Hamm and Nardwuar And The Evaporators. The Georgia Straight once called him ‘semi legendary’. Stephen in recent years has shifted his focus to mastering the Theremin an early electronic instrument that one does not touch but plays by interacting with magnetic fields around two antennae. In recent years Stephen has studied under the tutelage of German Theremin virtuoso Carolina Eyck and New York based Thereminist Dorit Chrysler. Stephen’s solo show, based around Theremin and Synthesizer is an electro musical journey into new abstract dimensions of sound!
