Wonder How To did not elaborated the materials for theremin and was not explaned well. It goes directly to the application wherein it is not clear wether the sound is coming from the mouth or actually from the theremin.

why would u ask how to play an ocarina in a theremin video?

omg blonde moment the theremin and ocarina look nothing alike

Interesting. The theremin sounds great.
