The Theremin is an electronic musical instrument, which is controlled without physical contact. The Theremin consisted of two metal antennas, which is sensitive and reacts to proximity of the performer. 

Thereminists place one hand close to the antennas, which control oscillators for frequency and the other hand for volume.  Artists who have utilised the Theremin include. 

Jimmy Page, Whole Lotta Love and No Quarter 

The Beach Boys, Good Vibrations 

Rolling Stones, Between The Buttons and Their Sanatnic Majesties Request.
