We of course all understand it, being intellectuals.
Excerpted from the website:
- from the first position on my wish list. This is a Theremincello (more here, which is where I grabbed the image from). Leon Termen, the inventor of the theremin, was a cellist before he was a physicist. He invented this instrument, some think because it would be easier for him to play. He played it for a while I guess. Some were produced. This would be back in the 1930s or thereabouts. They even produced a lower, bass version, but it was abandoned because the subsonic sounds (or whatever you call them) it produced made bass players nauseous.
