This New York-based dance outfit never made much noise, and this 16-track compilation, spanning 16 years, never lets you think otherwise.
Aptly titled Japanese release containing both entire albums and more by this early '80s hard rock act that Deep Purple's Roger Glover produced. In 2008, Overdrive Productions, Ltd. released Touch I/Touch II, which contained two complete albums - Touch I (1980, originally released on Atco) and Touch II.
Forget everything that you have heard up to now. There is no limit, everything is possible!
The theremin is the only instrument that is made to sound without being touched. The hands of the performer dance in the air, whereas traditional musical instruments are made to sound by blowing, bowing, plucking or striking. Invented by the Russian Lev Theremin in the 1920s, the theremin fell into oblivion for decades, one of the reasons being that only few compositions were written for this instrument. In TOUCH! DON’T TOUCH!, Barbara Buchholz and Lydia Kavina resume the thread of the history of the theremin with the help of new compositions and interactive projection. Five German and four Russian composers were commissioned to write pieces for two theremins and instrumental ensemble. The cooperation between these composers have placed a special emphasis on exploration and experiment, based on the possibilities of the instrument.
