DORIT CHRYSLER, thereminist


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.

Dorit Chrysler is a one-women-show that sounds like a

galactic space orchestra.  An indie rock incarnation of the

classic Theremin Queen.  A juggler of bits and bytes, melo-

dies and beats, Dorit Chrysler is renowned for her unique

theremin style.  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.


Having toured with Anders Trentemoeller across the US and Canada this year,

she has just released her third solo album “Sea Of Negligence” on the US label Prurience Factory.
