The debut CD "Meet The Lothars," was released in November, 1998, on the Camera Obscura record label. All songs feature Kris, Jon and Brendan on theremins and Ramona on Guitar, except as noted.

No synthesizers were used on this record! (except for maybe the electronic tamboura...)

about

The Lothars Somerville, Massachusetts

"Despite its overuse, soundscape is an apt description
of the Lothars' music — vistas of sound that are more
atmosphere than plot...they wring sadness and beauty
from such instruments as the hammer dulcimer and the
theremin. The live improvisations sound like elegies
for Martians, or love songs for robots."
-- Anaheed Alani, Playboy, May 2003
