11 12 EARLY HISTORY – PREDECESSORS AND PIONEERS As a business person, Cahill was also challenged to educate the public, members of the mass media, regulatory functionaries, musicians, and potential financial backers about the potential and benefits of electronically produced music. Unfortunately for Cahill, telharmonic music was unsuccessful as a business concept and the most ambitious achievement in the history of electronic music was soon forgotten. Its legacy lived on, however, in the tone wheel principles used to develop the popular Hammond organ in the late 1920s—a much more compact instrument that took advantage of vacuum tubes to miniaturize its components.

Bruised but triumphant, Russolo and Marinetti next presented a series of 12 performances in London in June 1914. The ensemble was arranged on stage with the megaphones of the noise-intoners aimed squarely at the audience. A musician stood behind each noise-intoner and read from a musical score mounted on a music stand. The formal stage appearance of the troupe was purposefully ironic and contrasted sharply with the noise music played by the musicians. 18 World War I largely brought the Futurist movement to an end.

The instrument was invented by the Russian electrical engineer and cellist, Lev Sergeyevich Termen (1896–1993), who was more commonly known by the anglicized version of his name, Leon Theremin. Originally called the Etherophone or Thereminovox, but later simply the Theremin, this device was first built in Russia around 1920. Although Theremin applied for patents in Germany and America during 1924 and 1925, it wasn’t until 1927 that Americans first heard public performances of the instrument. Like the Audion Piano, the Theremin used a beat frequency method to produce its haunting sonorities.
