Since Bach was pretty progressive, I assume he would appreciate it laugh. The only problem that I have with the video is the mixing. Without amplification the beatboxing is a little to silent against the piano.

This is excellent. Beatboxing (at this level) is incredibly difficult, and he fit in with the music perfectly, I think.

There's lots of open-minded people in this forum, so I don't think it would be too triggering... I hope so, at least. I can't stand people who don't appreciate a skilled artist, who may just be working in a field they aren't interested in, or which they automatically think is low-brow, despite them having no experience in it whatsoever. A couple comments below the video expressed just that: "I don't care for the beatboxer, but the kid playing the piano is awesome". (The beatboxing, for all it matters, was more nuanced and interesting than the piano playing, in this case.)

I do love classical music more than anything else (except for Queen, Depeche mode and Tigran Hamasyan), but that doesn't mean that I can't get great enjoyment out of great rap (mostly old-school), a great EDM track (again, almost always pre-2000, but still), or great beatboxing. And yes, they can be combined for interesting, and often enjoyable results.

And no, it doesn't ruin anything. Bach is not ruined by combining it with rhythm vocalizations. Especially this kind of Bach. The goldberg variations isn't the B-minor mass. Bach himself would not have taken this kind of music too seriously. And I wish that the elitists out there (again, not talking about this forum) wouldn't just lighten up and "take themselves less seriously" (which is a common advice given), but would take a serious look at themselves, and begin to broaden their view and understanding of music and art, and start educating themselves.

Yes, until I googled beatboxing, based on the video I thought it meant the hand motions that were done.

Ya, the mixing played with my brain a bit and had the illusion that the pianist was really, really rushing and it was driving me nuts--but I don't think the pianist was rushing at all. I also heard a lot of hemiola-type-something, which I am not sure was intentional. Brain puzzle listening to that for sure.

I do love me some beatboxing, though. Some of those beatboxing competitions on YouTube are outstanding and I can't get enough.

that was really cool, and very impressive on both counts - both are very talented!

Love it. That's the beatboxer from Pentatonix Kevin Olusola, he's kinda a big deal lol. He does a lot of beat boxing and cello playing at the same time very cool and amazing musicianship. If you like that you'll love this.

He’s from Kentucky. One of my best friends went to high school with him.

He studied cello growing up, and gained notoriety on YouTube for videos of him beatboxing while playing cello. The other members of Pentatonix called him up to join them, they won The Sing-Off, and the rest is history.

Woah!! This is amazing.
I love that he's reading along- this can only be the improvisation of one with great talent and so much musical knowledge. Beatboxing at the next level!

Absolutely love it haha. Anything that's inclusive like that gets a thumbs up from me.
I understand the use of the word 'triggering' here, but it just makes me think that I know I'm not the only person on here that can simultaneously listen to and enjoy an MF Doom track and then be in near tears at the end of 'O Statua Gentilissima' hahah. You get my drift smile
