It's not music, but it's sweet :lol:

Hehe, that was great!

I always loved this instrumental by John Butler; it's beautiful to listen to and to watch. Wait for it to build, you won't be disappointed :).

I like the way this version sounds better, but the video goes out of sync:

I love Hermeto.

This little snippet reveals two of the reasons why:

the super-size embrace of his energy and the determination to make music with anything..

Must be heard and seen live.

Thanks, Brian.

I had been looking for that.

There is one somewhere of a London railway station 'frozen' in time for a few security-confusing minutes.

If it rings a bell and you have a link, then this is a request....

Interesting, but misleading. I'm pretty sure they are lip syncing, but they give you the impression it's "live".

Still sounds great though.

Bobby McFerrin is quite the character who makes music just plain fun. :lol:

I tried to find a video of him and George Martin doing Bach's "Air on a G String" from the Rhythm of Life documentary but i couldn't find it.

However, filling in here for Sir George is the Gewandhaus Orchestra of Leipzig Germany for Bach's 250th Anniversary Celebration.

Loved Perpetuum Jazzile's version of Toto's Africa.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch in Brazil and a big fan of SA music, I also enjoyed their version of

Part 2 was best. Totally inspired! :lol::lol::lol:

I love Hammond organs, but I've also hold a fascination for pipe organs, I came across this on youtube, it's an collection of photographs by Ferdinand Hess that documented the construction of the Midmer Losh pipe organ (1919 - 1923) in the Atlantic City Convention Hall, Now renamed the Boardwalk Hall. If I every make it to Atlantic City, this will be on the top of my list of things to see there.

Now I know this might not be every one's cup of tea, but you can read up on the specs of the Midmer Losh on this Wiki Link

The Diaphone-Dulzians low C pipe stands 64′9″ (19.7 m) tall, weighs 3,350 pounds (1,675 kg), and produces a frequency of 8 Hz (the sound of the vibrating pallet is described as "a helicopter hovering over the building"). The pipe stands upright for about 40 feet (12 m), the remainder is turned towards the Right Stage chambers grill, like an upside-down L. All the pipes taller than 32 feet (9.8 m) stand like this.

The Diaphone-Dulzian rank spans from C3 to g², which means that it is extended so far that the 64′, 42²/3′, 32′, 211/3′, 16′, 10²/3′, 8′ and 4′ stops can be drawn from the same rank. No extension rank in the world spans that far. Also, when the 64′ and 42²/3′ are combined, the resultant tone would simulate a 128′ stop, which would sound a 4 Hz tone on low C.

A tone that you don't so much as hear, but rather a tone that you physical feel.

On a related note, no pun intended are a couple of vids by Carlo Curley (he cracks me up) but he does a fine intro and guild into the workings and operation of pipe organs.
