“Carolina Eyck is the Queen of Theremin.”
– Cicero –
“If there’s anyone who can harness the theremin’s wild potential, it’s Eyck, who as a teenager developed her own method of playing the instrument.”
-Boston Globe-
“Eyck modernizes the Theremin, merging it within classical tradition like child’s play.”

ABOUT CAROLINA EYCK

Carolina Eyck is a German-Sorbian musician and composer, largely recognized as the world’s leading theremin virtuoso. She was awarded the Echo Klassik Prize for “Concert Recording of the Year” in 2015.

Eyck has performed in concert halls around the world and has been a soloist with the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic, Brussels Philharmonic, Argentine National Symphony Orchestra, and more. Concertos for theremin and orchestra have been written for Eyck by composers including Kalevi Aho, Andrew Norman, Dalit Warshaw, and Régis Campo. She was also featured in the premiere of Fazil Say’s Universe and Mesopotamia Symphonies.

Carolina Eyck has performed in a duo with pianist and composer Christopher Tarnow since 2013, producing two records. In 2016, she released an album featuring her own composition “Fantasias for Theremin and String Quartet” with the American Contemporary Music Ensemble.

Balancing between minimal and progressive electronic music, Carolina’s melodic and partly fixed composition style leaves plenty of space for her virtuoso improvisations. Her transcription of Ennio Morricone’s “The Ecstasy of Gold” has been viewed more than 15 million times online. She enjoys collaborating with contemporary artists from a variety of genres, and has performed or recorded with rock legend Steve Vai, singer-songwriter Gotye, DJ Jeff Mills, guitarist Jim Moginie, Tangerine Dream, multi-instrumentalist Jacob Collier, and vocalist Theo Bleckmann, among others.

THEREMIN & VOICE

Surround Sound Solo Theremin Show.

In her solo show Theremin & Voice, Carolina breaks new ground using a surround sound system, allowing her theremin to break free and fill the space. Magical loops and artfully arranged layers of Carolina’s voice are generated live on stage and fly through the room in sync with her dance-like performance.

Singing without lyrics, Carolina’s voice and theremin form the perfect symbiosis. Indistinguishable at times, her voice appears out of reach and the theremin almost human. Balancing between minimal and progressive electronic music, Carolina’s melodic and partly fixed composition style leaves plenty of space for her virtuoso improvisations.

TALKS & WORKSHOPS

Carolina Eyck Talks Theremin

Carolina Eyck developed her own precise eight-finger-position playing technique by age 16 and published the first extensive theremin method book The Art of Playing the Theremin. Her method is now being used by thereminists around the world and has revolutionized how the instrument is played.

She regularly conducts theremin workshops, lectures, and master classes worldwide. She is the artistic director of the Theremin Academy in Colmar (France), Leipzig, and Berlin (Germany). In 2018, she gave a TEDx Talk about the symbiosis of self-control and freedom while playing the theremin. A documentary about her work, “Carolina and the Waves,” is currently in production.
