I think it's cool.
It's kind of like machine quilting. Free motion work.
It takes simultaneous relaxation plus focus. And when you screw up, you screw up real bad.

I have no idea whether 19 notes per second is impressive to really good pianists or not. Is it faster than average for concert level performers?

The fastest drummer on record can hit 20 beats per second.
(That's Mike Mangini's record.)

But we're comparing two hands (two drum sticks) with ten fingers. I'd like to think that ten fingers can do better than two hands, speed-wise.

Some have made careers out of something similar. For example, Philip Glass's music has pretty much the same effect. But he changes chords from time to time. Then there's John Coltrane and his sheets of sound. Based on what I've heard from Mr. Kung Fu Horowitz in the video, I think I'm with Bill Monroe.

it's like back in the '30s. (1800 that is)








+-18 notes / sec is supposed to be the threshold from which you can identify individual notes, iirc.

Ligeti based Continuum on that idea


I mean, I'm sure he's a nice guy (the guy on the bbc, but let's not pretend he invented hot water)

Ax: Mangini's world record is indeed amazing.

When he first broke 1200 strokes in 60 seconds in 2006 the drum world was in awe. Even that is I believe an old record now - I believe he hit 1247? I may be mistaken...

Anyway - he's not just a speed drummer - he's really a pretty amazing drummer, noted for his polyrhythmic ability among other very advanced traits.

Not his most impressive groove - but a very cool demo of the Pearl kit he's now using with Dream Theater.

I think he also hold a record for diddling (one handed).
Here's a piece of the solo he's currently performing with DT - and there are a couple awesome examples of his diddling, where at one point he's alternating hands doing a one-handed drum roll...

Yeah ... I saw Mangini performed life in Berklee College of Music; most impressive drum performance I have ever seen.

Did you go to berkley college of music?
Interestingly, that's where the original DT members all went to school, and met. (John Myung, John Petrucci, Mike Portnoy, etc.)

I just finished the piano video.

I swear Kissin plays some of the Preludes faster than this, and definitely the arpeggio etude (Op. 25, #12).

Don't have video of Kissing playing that one live - but this one:

Chopin Etude Op.25, #12 played by Lisitsa

In that case, you will really appreciate the "pectoral stretches (@2:04) and chest pumps (@3:26)," and don't miss the jumping jack-like arm stretches near the end.
