Invented in 1920 by Léon Theremin, the theremin is an electronic instrument that is played without physical contact by the performer. The theremin creates its signature ethereal tones with a performer’s proximity to its two antennas.
Theremix is a progressive web app that celebrates the 100th anniversary of the theremin by bringing the instrument into a virtual space. The virtual theremin can be controlled either with mouse/touch inputs or with gestures through a webcam via human pose tracking provided by PoseNet.
The Theremix wordmark is set in Whirly Birdie Bold Extended, with its second half outlined as a homage to the wide logos found in electronic synthesizers. The cursor and various iconography use Whirlybats. Smaller text is served by Nay Aug, a typeface in progress.
