While Calvin's sonic experiment may seem like a sly excuse to hang out with 15 swimsuit models (rather than the lab-coated "boffins" who originally came to him with the idea), the Humanthesizer stunt does have a legitimate, scientific purpose of sorts. This is how it works:
For this sonic experiment, Calvin played the main keyboard line and effects by interacting with a row of eight girls, while the rhythmic parts of the song were played by seven additional girls dancing a specially choreographed routine.
Sure, the girls are wearing bikinis. But they are also playing a unique, Humanthesized version of Calvin's latest dance single, "Ready For The Weekend," and it's groundbreaking stuff.

And if bikini girls ain't your thing, here's Calvin's original video, featuring mostly girls in one-piece leotards:
