Lesson 61
The Xtremes: Expression and the Pitch Hand
Part 2

As thereminists, we tend to think of the volume loop as the place where expression is lent to
the pitches and music we produce; some of us even refer to the volume loop as the
“expression loop.” It’s true – note articulation, the dynamics of loud and soft (crescendo,
diminuendo, pianissimo, etc.) all happen using the volume loop. Yet, an examination of the
pitch hand and its ability to subtly help “shape” a note or pitch reveals just how much can be
accomplished. Your pitch hand can lend an endless variety/character to musical passages,
soundscapes, and more.
