Duet for Theremin and Lap Steel is Scott Burland (theremin) and Frank Schultz (steel).
Together they create a combination of sounds from two non-fixed-pitch instruments and laptops in an improv environment with a disregard for traditional styles, creating rich textures, swooning collages, and hypnotic pulses.
"Duet for Theremin & Lap Steel weaves the sounds of these unlikely instruments into one sometimes pretty, sometimes scary, always captivating dronescape." Creative Loafing Atlanta 6jan2010
"These sounds are the product of two minds sharing a single headspace and letting the music drive... Here, they collide with the cerebellum in a graceful, slow-motion crash." Chad Radford, Creative Loafing Atlanta
