In the third episode of The Raspberry Pi Today podcast we chat to Greig. He’s a software by day, but by night he goes by the name Theremin Hero. Greig got to the semi-final of Britains Got Talent in 2012 playing his Laser Harp – here’s the video of the soundbite we played in the Podcast:

Greig’s latest Raspberry Pi-powered project is the NESKeytar, an electronic instrument he made using a (fully working) NES console, a Guitar Hero controller and an old toy keyboard among other things.

And here’s the video of his excellent remix of the Game Of Thrones soundtrack, which went viral. It took him about six days to perfect and he had to teach himself the keyboard as he went, so total respect to Greig – a great guy and a great achievement!
