Walla Walla Chamber Music Festival: Carolina Eyck, theremin @ Foundry Vineyards

THER·E·MIN

/ˈTHerəmən/

noun: theremin; plural noun: theremins

An electronic musical instrument in which the tone is generated by two high-frequency oscillators and the pitch controlled by the movement of the performer's hand toward and away from the circuit.
 

Now that we’ve cleared that up... what is a theremin? Do you know that cool sound in the Beach Boys’ hit, Good Vibrations? Do you know the sound on The Simpsons every time the space aliens Kodos and Kang make a cameo? Not to mention the rest of Sci-Fi? Yes, the theremin plays a role in all of these situations, but it is so much more…
 

What do you say to Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee? Or what about Rachmaninov’s iconic Vocalise? Come experience this wild and wonderful instrument in the hands of the world’s foremost virtuoso, Carolina Eyck. In addition to the works above, Carolina will share some of her own compositions, showcasing the realm of possibility at the intersection of science and art.
 

Artists: Carolina Eyck, theremin; and Henry Kramer, piano.
 

Doors open at 5 PM.
