Electronic theremin


Posted on Oct 2, 2012

This circuit has the CMOS IC doing double-duty performance. The first two inverters operate as a digital audio oscillator; the third operates as a low-gain linear audio amplifier. As the intensity of the light falling on photoresistor LDRl increases the oscillator's frequency increases; similarly, the illumination falling on photoresistor LDR2 determines the volume level from the loudspeaker:

The more illumination the more volume. If you flop and wave your hands between the two photocells and a light source, a special kind of electronic music will be produced.
