Aquatic Ambiance on Theremin (DKC music)

My first theremin video!
Aquatic Ambiance from Donkey Kong Country (SNES) played on Moog Etherwave.
I needed something easy(ish) to start with, this seemed ideal.

The piano part was recorded seperately using a pitch-to-midi filter that I “built” using bidule and Pure Data (pd).
I realised quickly that this part was too fast to play normally (at my level), plus the piano sounds better anyway, especially with the echo switched on.

The biggest challange for me is keeping in tune. There are still some off-sounding notes in this recording. Hopefully I will improve and will put up more theremin videos soon. Trust me, The pros make it look WAY easier than it is.
