Eyck is widely considered the world’s foremost theremin virtuosa. A childhood prodigy, Eyck developed an innovative theremin technique by age 14 and published The Art of Playing the Theremin, which teaches her technique, while just 17 years old. As a soloist and chamber musician she has given concerts worldwide and collaborated with Heinz Holliger, Robert Kolinsky, Gerhard Oppitz, the conductors Andrey Boreyko, Michael Sanderling, Gürer Aykal and John Storgårds, the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, the HR-Symphony Orchestra, the Dresden Philharmonic, the Bern Symphony Orchestra, the Essen Philharmonic Orchestra, the Lapland Chamber Orchestra, the Heidelberg Symphonic Orchestra, the Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg and ACME, the American Contemporary Music Ensemble.
In 2012, Carolina Eyck played the theremin solo in the world premieres of two symphonies by Fazil Say – Mesopotamia and Universe. In 2012, the Finnish composer Kalevi Aho wrote a theremin concerto for Eyck, her recording of which was released by BIS Records in July 2014. The recording was awarded with a 2015 ECHO-Classic prize in Germany for "Concert Recording of the Year (Music 20./21.Century).” Eyck has performed in a duo with pianist and composer Christopher Tarnow since 2013, producing two records, one for Butterscotch Records and one for Germany’s GENUINE label. In October 2016, Carolina Eyck and American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME) released Fantasias for Theremin and String Quartet, composed by Eyck. Carolina Eyck has conducted theremin workshops, lectures and master classes worldwide. Since 2010 she has been the artistic director of the Theremin Summer Academy in Colmar (France), and since 2013 she has led the Theremin Spring Academy in Leipzig (Germany).
