Video: Gnarls Barkley “Crazy” performed on the Theremin

Posted by Dr. Macenstein

Faithful Macenstein reader ComputerNap turned me on to this amazing video of the Gnarls Barkley song Crazy being performed on the theremin. As none of you know, the Theremin was the first electronic instrument ever developed (back in 1919) and is the only instrument designed to be played without being touched. Check out the awesomeness.

Yes, it inherently has nothing to do with the Mac, but if we try hard enough, we can almost always find some way to link something to the Mac. For instance, it looks like the Google Search at the end of the clip may have been performed on FireFox for Mac. Also, the entire video was edited in Adobe After Effects, which, while not Mac-specific, is the program I make my living using (on a Mac), so I appreciate the effort it takes to do any 3-minute audio-based project in that audio-hating program.

Its also worth checking out other theremin videos performed by this amazing artist (known as ooo6), specifically his Legend Of Zelda Theme. When 1980’s Nintendo and theremins collide, it really doesn’t get much geekier than that.

    Doesn’t matter if it has anything to do, literally interpreted, with the Mac. Everyone knows Mac is culture, not a computer.
