From the venue:With his first novel, Us Conductors, music journalist Sean Michaels crafts a fictional biography of Leon Theremin and the love of his life, Clara Rockmore. Theremin is celebrated as the inventor of the Theremin, one of the first electronic musical instruments. His true lifeâ€™s story is filled with mystique, spy intrigue, and imprisonment. Ultimately, Us Conductors is a love story, for better or worse. Michaelsâ€™ rich imagination fills in the blanks with all sorts of details that are no stranger than Thereminâ€™s real life. Michaels celebrates the release of Us Conductors on Thurs., July 3, with a reading and Q&A at Highland Inn Ballroom Lounge. Duet For Theremin and Lap Steel also performs.
