Theremidi Orchestra (TO) was an audiovisual DIY community initiated by participants of the Theremini and Teremidi physical interface workshop, organised by Ljudmila – Ljubljana Digital Media Lab in May 2011. Rather than a subject, TO was a verb, an ongoing noise and drone production workshop. This hands-on electro-noise ensemble existed in the present while referring to the history of electronic music. TO had a DIY/DIWO approach to making music and sound experiments, developing its own instruments based on open-source electronic circuits with CC licences. TO had nine active members coming from different professional backgrounds. The orchestra has performed, exhibited and held workshops at over thirty festivals and exhibitions, mostly in Europe, e.g. Piksel Festival in Bergen, Norway; LiWoLi Festival in Linz, Austria; PoolLoop in Zürich, Switzerland; U3: Triennial of Contemporary Art, Museum of Contemporary Art in Ljubljana, Slovenia, and also at the Eyebeam / CT-SWaM, New York.

Theremidi Orchestra core members were: Dušan Zidar, Ida Hiršenfelder, Dare Pejić, Luka Frelih, Tina Dolinšek, Robertina Šebjanič, Tilen Sepić, Simon Bergoč, Saša Spačal.
