Now here is an interesting and unusual example of "popular music", meaning little other than it is not classical.

There is a lot of virtuosity, precision and ingenuity in that performance. Aided, of course, by a serious set of pedals and stuff on the floor. One only realizes how much the electronics are involved when he stops playing at the end and just kneels down and fades it out. One of the things he can do with the pedals is record and repeat a segment of music.

But forgive me for thinking, in the back of my mind, that give me six months with this guy and I could have him playing Bach. You know, something worth while?
