Carolina Eyck is widely considered the world’s foremost thereminist. Of her recent Tiny Desk concert, NPR reports, "to play the theremin like Eyck does, with her lyrical phrasing and precisely 'fingered' articulation, takes a special kind of virtuosity." She brings music from her newest album, Elegies for Theremin and Voice, to Constellation for this concert celebrating the album's release and the centennial of the invention of the theremin -- an instrument played without physical contact. Elegies for Theremin and Voice features Eyck's inventive original compositions and improvisations -- a meditation on mortality and loss, it is a haunting work in which Eyck surprises us with her vocal prowess. Butterscotch Records releases Elegies for Theremin and Voice on September 27, 2019.
“Eyck modernizes the Theremin, merging it within classical tradition like child’s play.” — Electronic Musician
