German-Sorbian musician and composer Carolina Eyck is one of the world’s leading performers on the theremin. She was introduced to the theremin by her parents at the age of seven and took her first theremin lessons with Lydia Kavina. After her debut in the Berlin Philharmonie in 2002, she has been invited to concerts and festivals around the world. It was not long before she was known as one of the best theremin soloists worldwide.
At the age of 16, Eyck developed her own precise 8-finger position playing technique and published the first comprehensive textbook: “The Art of Theremin Playing.” Her technique is now used by theremin players around the globe and has revolutionized the way the instrument is played.
Carolina has given concerts in over 30 countries and performed as a soloist with the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, the Brussels Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional de Argentina, among others. Composers Kalevi Aho, Andrew Norman, Dalit Warshaw, and Régis Campo wrote concertos for theremin and orchestra for Eyck. Since 2013, Eyck has formed a permanent duo with pianist and composer Christopher Tarnow.
In 2016, Carolina began touring her solo Theremin & Voice program. Balancing between minimal and progressive electronic music, Carolina’s melodic and partly fixed composition style leaves plenty of space for her virtuoso improvisations.
Eyck gives workshops and theremin lessons worldwide and is also the artistic director of the Theremin Academies in Colmar (France), Leipzig, and Berlin.
WildKat is pleased to be working with Carolina on Press & PR for her upcoming album Thetis 2086, which will be released on April 15, 2022, under the label Neue Meister.
