Electro Theremin @ Kepa Lehtinen

The Maestro of the Theremin is out with a brand new song “NOwhere”… there is more to the instrument made famous by Scifi films from 50’s”

The theremin comes to life under the direction of the rising Finnish composer, Kepa Lehtinen on his new dark andante Nowhere.“The way I use the theremin is quite unique. Together with double bass the theremin completes the piano like cello and violin does in classical piano trio.” The theremin is an electronic instrument which produces sound when your hands interact with the electro-magnetic field it emits without actually touching the device itself. It was invented in the labs of KGB by Russian engineer Leon Theremin in the early 1920s.

Strumming through the invisible electronic waves the Tonality play is unnoticeable. While harmonies are modern and complex;  the overall feel seems to be nonetheless easily approachable and primitively hypnotic.

Insight to the world of the Theremin from Kepa….On the sound  ”Retro but ultra hifi sound has been my goal at the studio. Sound of sadness and past.” “Everybody wonders at my instrument,” ”but after all it is the most organic musical instrument there is. The sound is in direct contact with my breathing and the slightest movements of my body. I played the theremin part with a sore hand that I had hurt in a small skate accident i can feel the pain in my hand every time i listen to this track – lol”

Kepa Lehtinen is a native of Helsinki, Finland. He began to study music as a child and eventually went on to study Sound Design at Finland’s Aalto University and has since written music for many films, commercials, and TV productions. He plays the piano, synthesizers, theremin, After college Kepa continued his work as a composer, sound editor, and sound designer. His music has appeared in award-winning Finnish titles such as Kimmo (TV series), Almost 18 (feature film), and A Stone LeftUnturned (short film). He released his first solo album, Playing Theremin, in 2018. In 2019 he released Helsinki in November and 2020 It is ok to be sad and dark. Kepa is also an avid skateboarder and also runs a sound studio for film and tv. This fall Kepa was chosen as the composer of the week on the prestigious moving classics tv.

KIM Cameron NEW SONG

She Tops the POPS  and Tops the Charts…. KIM Cameron..  

Dropping a new song just in time for the HOLIDAYS EDM dance Artist Kim Cameron comes out with a brand new song that many of us can relate to. Her new Electro POP song “Show Me You Feel” is a story about a woman trying to get the attention of a man glued to his phone.  She dreams of escaping with her love to far off lands where cell phones and other electronica leases have been abandoned.  Look for this single to chart up to the top.  Produced by Kevin Rockhill out of New York City.  Even at 106 BPM, this one feels like you need to be moving on the dance floor. 

Originally from LA, Kim Cameron moved to a number of states in the US with her family before settling in Nebraska where she earned her college degree in broadcast journalism. Growing up, she had played the clarinet in her school orchestra and marching band as a child and eventually landed musical theatre roles and sang in choirs in her young adult years. After college, she worked as a radio personality in Lincoln, NE and later worked for information technology companies in their media departments. While continuing to work in the corporate world, she moved to Miami Beach where she began her musical path by joining a local cover band in the early 90s.
