Bulat Galeev, Statement about Theremin/Bute, Kasan 2006

Maybe you will be interested by the story my older colleague Lev Theremin told me many years ago. When L.Theremin lived and worked in USA (1929-1939), he had electronic music studio. According to his words, the great physicist A.Einstein conducted experiments in cooperation with young M.E.Bute in that studio, searching for correspondences between geometric figures and music. Theremin could not to recall in details how this work was done. He remembered a great number of abstract pictures hanged on the walls. I’d mentioned this episode in my book “Soviet Faust: Lev Theremin, a Pioneer of Electronic Art”.
