Clara was created by Sarah Angliss, a musician, sound artist and tinkerer, to play the theremin.
In Sarah’s own words:
Named in honour of the original theremin virtuoso Clara Rockmore, Clara 2.0 is a robot doll who can play the theremin live. I call her the ‘polite robot thereminist’ as she listens to a line from another player and moves her dolly arm to bring her own theremin in perfect tune.
