It's been one heck of a week. Here are 8 things to enjoy wholeheartedly and enthusiastically, from a new barcode instrument, to a deep dive on theremins, to Igor Levit live on Twitter.

Plus, plant music, the world's largest stringed instrument, and the ancient sounds of the Hagia Sophia. 

Also in this roundup: Jessica Alba dances to Beethoven, a robot conducts an orchestra, a cat joins the symphony, and so, so much more. 

Would you attend a concert without knowing anything about the program first? These people did, and loved it. Also, new findings about Beethoven, and the Shanghai Symphony makes the best of a bad situation.
