This is a video of thereminist Carolina Eyck performing a very spirited rendition of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s ‘Flight Of The Bumblebee’ on her instrument. The electronic sound of the theremin actually works surprisingly well with the piece, and I closed my eyes and could almost see the bumblebee flying. Then opened my eyes and OH SHIT, THAT’S A HORNET. Fun fact: I actually found a hornet in my bedroom yesterday (I have crappy windows that don’t close all the way) and managed to catch it in a trash bag and release it back outside. I thought the whole thing pretty heroic, but there was no hero’s kiss or lap dance afterwards, so clearly my girlfriend felt otherwise. “It was barely moving.” That thing could have My Girl‘d me!
