”La terre, il se pourrait bien après tout que ce soit une espèce
de merveilleux petit appareil enregistreur, plaçé là par on ne sait qui,
pour capter tous les bruits qui circulent mystérieusement dans l’Univers.”
Pierre Reverdy - ”En vrac” - 1929

Konstantin Kovalsky (1890-1976)was a Russian trained violinist and one of the first Theremin players.
As he had broken his hand and looked at the non-contact Theremin as an ideal instrument to start the music again, Kowalski constructed his own instrument, with which he varied the pitch with his right hand, but with a pedal the volume. With left he served a series of buttons that allowed further control over the music.
Kovalsky also performed concerts during the period in which all forms of modernism in Soviet art were put forward.
With the ensemble for electronic music of the television and radio of the USSR, he played more than 3000 concerts as a solo musician for folk music, Soviet political songs, and popular pieces of classical music.
