Player: Piano – The Tetris Theme (Korobeiniki) by Sonya Belousova

Watch more with these video collections:

For people of a certain age, Tetris is a well-loved classic video game that mixes some strategy with good, old-fashioned gut-reaction decision-making. Hearing the familiar theme Korobeiniki can quickly bring back images of those cubic blocks rushing down, awaiting perfect placement.

Enter pianist Sonya Belousova, who makes a YouTube series called Player: Piano with filmmaker Tom Grey. Above, Belousova plays Korobeiniki, The Tetris Theme, on a specially-made pinball machine piano.
