Alma Deursher, an amazing teenager who can compose music in less than a minute based on four random notes picked from a hat !
Here's another rendition of Mozart's “Alla Turca”, which reminds me a lot of Pierre-Yves Plat
Percussions can be harder than any other instruments. Here's a video, from the point of view of the percussionist, playing the musical “West Side Story”
Youtube user Vika (vkgoeswild), in between playing her own piano compositions, plays cover of famous songs. Among others, I found this cover of Metallica's Master if puppet, which I wanted to share.
Overtune is something natural in all live instruments, including the human voice. But being able to control it to sing two distinct melodies at once is an amazing talent.
In this video, Anna-Maria explains how it works. You can also find lessons on her Youtube channel to learn how to sing like her.

Here's an advertisment for the Android operating system, which, I think, extraordinarily delivers their message :
Be together, not the same. This is how Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata (3rd movement) would sound on a piano playing only a middle C.

Following on yesterday's post, here's a video I found on Facebook of a Robotic Arm playing the Glass Harp against a ping pong champion.
Young people these days are truly amazing ! A few years ago, I was surprised to see teenagers singing and simulating the vocoder effect.
This time, a teenage Armenian girl, named Viktoria Hovhanissyan interprets the "Mad Scene" from the Lucia di Lammermoor opera. It's even more impressive when you know that the Inva Mula, the albanian soprano who gives her voice to the Diva Plavalaguna in the film, had to record some voices seperately, which were then mixed later on a computer. When Eric Serra showed her the music sheet, she reportedly said that it was not humanly possible to sing the song as it was written.
While searching around, I found another video of a younger Ukrainian girl performing the same song.
