She Plays “The Ecstacy of Gold” On A Weird Instrument, And It’s Unlike Anything You’ve Ever Heard
To a person who’s not knowledgeable about electronics or music, this music instrument looks like magic. Theremin is actually the only instrument that could be played without any physical contact. It’s all about the way you position your hands in mid-air so you can imagine how hard it is to master.
But when you finally do it, the results are incredible. This is Ecstasy of Gold, composed by Ennio Morricone and performed by Carolina Eyck, probably the world’s best Theremin player. I don’t know what is it about this, but the sound of this instrument and the movements of her hands make it impossible not to watch.
