Lightbulb ITT : Inspirational musicianship videos

Hello !

All the time, when I have a funny pic or video to share, I know where to go : the ITT funny pictures thread.

But everytime I have an awesome musician performance video that pumps me up, I'm always asking myself wether I should post a thread about it or not.

So maybe we can have a thread were we would post videos that probably would interest everyone else unless they diserve a whole thread for some reason (a request about more information about it, or a collection of videos from a particular artist that diserve their own thread, the release of an album). Here the videos would be more of the "random discovery" category. I know laughter is more universal than music because some impressive musician videos would do nothing to someone else, but why not ? I am actually surprised we don't have this here, for we are all musicians of at least one instrument, and are probably all sensitive to some sort of music performance even out of our territory.

The idea here would be quality of quantity, because I feel that most threads where people start posting their favourite songs that match the subject of the thread end being a collection of links no-one has the time to listen to. Here the idea would be only videos of something very interesting and with the potential to interest most of us. It could end in a very interesting thread to consult regularly.

So here I am starting, because yesterday I discovered some TED videos are about music, and I was literally caught by emotion watching them, for talking so well about Music with a big M, and for the awesome and yet simple performances they produce there ! If ever you know any other TED conference video related to music, feel free.


When she plays the marimba in the middle of the video in an organ way, I was completely surprised and was amazed at how beautiful this instrument is.


He is just so communicative, how can you not like music after you see him talk and play ?

watched the videos from the bottom to the top of the thread, so I started with Derek, that was pretty cool
and interesting, my gf is going to be an art therapist and my aunt is a music therapist so I already knew a
bit about this "topic".
Pretty amazing how he is able to perform everything and changing it in a creative way.

Always cool to see something like this and really inspiring-but what really made me think was the video of
Benjamin Zander, he made me think about my views on music and life, nobody ever made me think about stuff
like that, especially not through a 20 minute video on youtube...

Also, some ethnomusicology stuff can be pretty inspirational, to think where we all came from and what not.


Sami yoik




Tribal Welcoming Songs (Some African tribes as well as some South East Asian communities have specific songs set aside to greet visitors to their community)




Classical adaptations of Chinese Art Song, Opera


Last piece is pretty crazy, a Chen Yi, a classical composer, put together this piece to mimic Chinese opera.

I hope this doesn't sound ignorant or too dumb, but the first thought that came to my mind while I watched the video
was like "hm, some jewish guys that look pretty nerdy partying like a sir".
Music wise-there's sooo much stuff going on around the world and lots of stuff that's pretty standard in some countries
most of us never really listened to, like classical indian music or thai stuff-and I don't mean the stuff you can buy in some
strange esoteric shops

Crap, I was just finishing editing that post when you responded. I love posting different stuff from around the world The tribal stuff is really cool, because that's sort of the birth of melody.

Hahaha, no worries. The Hasidic video made me laugh because it was so out of context. Typically, the Orthodox community is still pretty limited in what they can and can't listen to on a secular and culturally level, so to have a Hasidic man playing an Irish fiddle and then go into a Yiddish theme was pretty mind blowing too me. Also, I'm still kind of learning about metal, and contextually, it can be tough for me to relate sometimes, so I try to make connections with all of this.

just got back to this thread and was like "damn-my comment is going to sound like shit now due to all these new videos"

Yeah-I get what you mean and I really like your phrase "the birth of melody", always thought how cool it would be to go
back in time to listen to the stuff people played 1000 years ago for example just to hear the essence of the all the different
things we listen to today.

^ it would sound a bit strange considering Bach invented the tempered scale only a few centuries ago ! Before him you couldn't transpose !
I guess it would sound close though. I wonder how a non tempered piece sounds like.

Alright, so probably not the sort of thing that most of you will be responsive to.
But I personally find Diego's riffing entrancing, he truly has his own style.
Granted, it's essentially really warped early Suffocation style riffing, but he has a mastery over the instrument that has led to a weird feeling from the music that I can only describe as "flow".
Not in the hip-hop sense though, and it's not really groove either. I can't really describe it, but I'm wholly fascinated by it.

Cool videos posted so far!

Also, if anyone can tell what guitar Diego (on the left) is playing that would be great.

OT: I have no clue about the guitar, I only saw him with a B.C. Rich Beast in the past, the upper horn here
reminds me of a B.C. Rich Bich a bit and you could see a bit more at 3:14 that looks like one imho, but in the
end I have no clue
But it really reminds me of an old Bich I've seen somewhere, same color, I think with a Kahler trem and the
old headstock (the classic one, a bit Gibson style) with a natural finish and not the burst.

BTT: about the tempered scale, that's what is really intresting to me when it comes to Indian music for example
because it's just based on a completly different system than western music, but it's really hard for me to get
into this because you're just used to the tempered scale and to the western use of it.

^ I'm a big fan of all those asiatic string instruments with no fretboard. They sound so nice ! And the mongolian throat singing is so impressive... Check this one :


2:55 is definitely metal btw (in your vid)

Damn, I need to post this video as well, it's just so damn nice sounding :
