I’m super impressed by this cover of sandstorm actually. 

I found that one of the key differences between myself and an “artist” is how they perceive the world, and this is a perfect example of that.  It sounds like noise, until you play with it a little.  I’ve recently been trying to live more like an artist since staying at home for 3 months has led me to realize that I don’t tend to modify my environment, or make art from things with no utility the way that an artist does.

Thanks for sharing Kirby!  Did you notice that all the comments on this video are mostly about the googly eyes?

considering how dedicated the human brain is to finding, and recognizing faces especially eyes and mouths, I find it kind of funny that so manny people want him to put back the eyes on these…. random objects… imaginary friends?

EDIT:  Shit, speaking of sandstorm, I need to get out my DDR pad!

Very clever stuff!  “We Will Rock You” really made me smile.

     

Sorry, Santa.  There were just too many options.

My big project is finished, so here is (the first part of) Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto.

This time, I hired a sound engineer to mix my recording. I think it absolutely was worth it. What do you think? Can you tell the difference?

Kudos, Mr. T.!  Your playing is extra fine, and the mixing is very well balanced.  I also love the touches of humor with your footwear and streamer. I can imagine the time it took to put all 15 “yous” together.  Thanks so much for sharing this here. Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

I’m glad you noticed the socks. Didn’t know if people would, and you’re the first one who has mentioned it.

Nocturne in C sharp mi. as a Saw/Piano duet

give it a listen please.

I find it hauntingly beautiful the way that a skilled theremin player is.

Beautiful! A different way of playing the saw compared to what I’ve seen before, too. Don’t think I’ve seen that left-hand handle, and also the way she starts the tone quickly and then leaves the bow off the saw. Most saw players I’ve seen have used the bow more like a string player would. As you pointed out, this really brings out the theremin-like qualities of the instrument.

Yeah so if you don’t have a handle at the business end of the saw, trying to bend the metal without a lever of some sort gets tiring quickly.

I’ve seen that handle referred to as a “cheat” handle, but I couldn’t hold the saw’s S shape without it.

Because the saw’s s has to keep it’s very specific shape for each note that the saw can produce, it’s very easy to get tired and fall out of tune, or be unable to produce clear tone.

I also thought the same thing about…  I want to call them stacatto inputs, but that’s not right.

I’ve only been able to play mine similar to how she does, with a brush of the bow and then lifting it away.

When I tried more sustained bow movement the way you would expect with a string instrument, I can’t get the tone to sustain for longer than a second or so.

I know it’s silly, but I love to snicker at bad propaganda.

I’ll share some bad propaganda from my country, (both major parties in U.S. are equally guilty)
and I would really love it if you guys would share some bad propaganda from your country for us to snicker at too.

Remember when that “Keep Calm And Carry On” stuff got really meme’d?
I’m not sure why, it wasn’t even that catchy of funny, and to this day I still see
“Keep Calm and ____” bumper stickers.  I could understand if I lived in UK where it seemed to originate, but to think it traveled this far as a meme, and had this kind of staying power!

This is the best I could find, and it’s brand new!

EDIT: to provide context there as been efforts in the U.S. to re-imagine policing institutions due to the large number of preventable civilian deaths at the hands of police for typically non-violent crimes.
Presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden came out immediately in response to his base which some were calling for ‘defunding of police,’ and said that he would not support that.  But this got made anyway.  All good propaganda preys on people’s fear <3 And the short clip at 13 seconds shows protesters policing themselves, actually stopping a person from destroying property and stopping him from escalating the situation.  They couldn’t even get 30 seconds of fear-monger footage OMG.

As always, I can’t resist unusual covers:

NOTHING ELSE MATTERS by STEVE´N´SEAGULLS (LIVE)


Thunderstruck by Steve’n'Seagulls (LIVE)

 


I really like this one. The song translates very well to the medieval instruments, and rather than detracting from them the singer’s relatively thick accent seems to enhance the lyrics… although now I’m left wondering how the song would sound sung fully in Belarusian instead of English?

Metallica - One (medieval cover by Stary Olsa) Легенды.Live

 

What say y’all?

 

     

Consider this: People say “Ewwww!!!” when they hear about a guy having a hairy bum or hairy back, yet every Teddy Bear ever made has had both a hairy bum AND a hairy back and nobody complains about them; In fact, people think Teddy Bears are adorable.

In the non-cover segment of my listening life….


Catchy tune, plus how often do you see someone play a five-string violin or what I’m told is called a “Table Harp”?

Отава Ё - Про Ивана Groove (русское готическое R’N'B) - Otava Yo


How often do you get to see someone twirl a caber (yes, you read that right) in a music video?

Отава Ё – Сумецкая (русские частушки под драку) Otava Yo - russian couplets while fighting

 


You watch non-mainstream videos, you get non-mainstream recommendations, thus I found this video.  Undeniably cool and a well-deserved punch in the nose to the airline that claimed Scandinavians have no culture, but beyond that the video is worth watching for the comments alone.  My favorite-

“Reads through the comments, I don’t get the hype it can’t be this serious

10 mins later I’m naked in my yard dancing around an open flame preparing to raid my neighbors”

Heilung | LIFA - Krigsgaldr LIVE

I had heard Steve’n'Seagulls before, and I love it. Thunderstruck in particular is great!

One. I didn’t care for the song, so I looked them up on YouTube to see what else they play. I wouldn’t mind hearing them play and would stop for a while if I found them playing on the street, but they are not really for me.

Про Ивана Groove - Now we’re talking! These people know how to play so that feet start moving. I’ll be returning to this one. Thanks for sharing! And a really like their other video too.

What?! I think I’m going to have to share some Swedish music here. (Later. I’m off to practise on my tuba now.)

That Icelandic thing was interesting. I like it. (And it reminds me of other things I’d like to share with you!)

So here’s some traditional Swedish music for you:

Well, this tune is an original, but the genre is traditional, even if the group is a bit modern. This group, Stormsteg, is one of the best things I’ve ever heard live.

Another of my favourite groups, NID. (They don’t play together much anymore, as Hanna, the sax player, has moved to New Zealand.) Just listen to that saxophone! She may have the most beautiful sax sound I’ve heard.

And since we were talking about Iceland… Have you heard Daði Freyr’s Think About Things? It manages to be both fun, groovy and beautiful. (They lyrics were written to his newborn baby.) It was meant to be Iceland’s contribution to the Eurovision Song Contest this year, but that got cancelled due to the pandemic.
