The rocky playing on the theremin makes Gilda with her electronic effects. She generates E-Guitar like sounds after her role model Jimi Hendrix.
Some special highlight for her were that she had the honor of performing with her theremin on the grammy nominated album Fifty by Manhattan Transfer with the Funkhaus Orchestra Cologne on the track Twilight Zone/ Twilight Tone. It was arranged by Vince Mendoza.
