hell's half acre

"There is an obscure musical instrument called the theremin that produces sound without ever being touched. The player moves his hands in a slow circular motion between twin antennae thin as ghosts, calling forth eerie underwater noises akin to whalespeak. Brian Wilson was particularly fond of the theremin. He used it sparingly on the Pet Sounds albums, I believe. Anyway, Jude and I have always managed to extract sound from each other, without ever touching the skin.
And I think that's love, or something like it."
