Playing strings of aether
The Legend of Zelda theme on theremin:
The inventor of the theremin lived a remarkable life. Here's a biography that includes a picture of his wife.

That is one of the coolest things I have seen, but what is a theremin? It looks like he is playing the air.
Interesting you should post this just now -- I saw a theremin just yesterday, on display at the Museum of Science and Inudstry in Chicago. It was set up to be played by visitors, but was not working, a pity, as I would very much have liked to have heard it. (I only first heard of it the last time you posted about it.)
Only had a go on a theremin once. It started off as a great idea to make a sinister folk song sound completely creepy.
