Electronic Musician Clara Rockmore's birthday honoured by a Google doodle
Google Doodle today commemorates the first pioneer electronic musician Clara Rockmore's 105th birthday today with an interactive video who was a talented musician right from a very young age, and she went to be a pioneer of electronic music.

She is considered to be a child prodigy in music since it is said that right from the age of two she could  identify melodies on the piano.  Furthermore, at four she four she keenly learned  violin at the St Petersburg Imperial Conservatory in her country. People used to wonder to see her  perform her auditions  standing on a table to be visible amongst the adults.

Rockmore's family had to flee the USSR's revolutionary government and reached the US in 1921. However, she developed arthritis in her bow arm in US and shifted to electronic media after marrying Louis Theremin, the inventor of the world's first electronic instrument. She could manipulate the media so aptly that she became pioneer in electronic music.

With her new found talent and innovativeness she became a  pioneering theremist and many other musicians got inspired from her work including Beatles.
