Although she works and resides in New York City, Dorit Chrysler was born in Austria. She has a masters degree in music, and has chosen to become a virtuoso on perhaps the most unusual electronic instrument of all—the theremin—which has a distinctive sound perhaps known to most people only for the Beach Boys’ Good Vibrations. She is also the founder of the NY theremin society and the European theremin association, creating community platforms for thereminists. Dorit has shared live bills with such diverse acts as Dinosaur Jr., Blonde Redhead, Marilyn Manson, Mercury Rev, Oingo Boingo, Rodelius and Echo and the Bunnymen. She has also collaborated and recorded with artists & producers such as Elliot Sharp, Matt Johnson (The The), Larry 7, Gordon Raphael (The Strokes), Foetus, Martin Bisi & Gibby Haynes (Butthole Surfers).
