Scratch Theremin, Interspecies audio visual performance, 2011-present
For Scratch Theremin, Andreyev works with Tom using interactive software and a theremin to produce a collaborative improvisational interspecies performance. Using a specially adapted theremin, built by Andreyev, that incorporates a carpet, human and canine gesture are used to produce a live soundscape and visualization. Also, Tom’s creative vocals accompany the performance adding his enthusiastic subjective view.
