MP3 Dorit Chrysler - Sea of Negligence
Featuring the Theremin, this is a one-woman show that sounds like a galactic space orchestra. Imagine if Marianne Faithfull and Nikola Tesla had a love child, with Jane Birkin as the nanny and Bjoerk as the wayward Girl Scout Leader!

Invented 1919 by Russian electro physicist Lev Sergejewitch Termen, the Theremin generates sound without being touched. Notoriously hard to play, it is one of the first electronic instruments that inspired the creation of synthesizers in future generations. A juggler of bits and bytes, melodies and beats, Dorit Chrysler is renowned for her unique theremin style. An indie rock incarnation of the classic Theremin Queen. Starwars meets The Sound of Music. Or as Paper Magazine puts it: "Imagine if Marianne Faithfull and Nikola Tesla had a love child, with Jane Birkin as the nanny and Bjork as the wayward girl scout leader!"
Dorit Chrysler has shared the stage with Trentemoeller, Marilyn Manson, Cluster, Lee Hazelwood,
Elliot Sharp, Gibby Haynes, JG Thirlwell and Lene Lovich, she has toured across Japan, Australia,
Europe, the US & Canada and performed at Lincoln Center, Palais Tokyo of Paris, Vienna Konzerthaus,
Roskilde and the Electric Eclectic Festival. She lives and works in New York.
Born and raised in Austria, Dorit moved to New York in the early nineties, leaving her studies of
classical music behind and fronting the rock band " Halcion" - when she finally encountered the
theremin in 2000, she applied it to her compositions and started her solo career. She has released
several solo recordings and sang and played on albums of TheThe and Trentemoeller, to name just
a few. She is the founder of the New York Theremin Society and has written scores for film and TV.
