A couple of months ago, DEM started a Sports Music series of ‘extreme’ or solo sports videos accompanied by music.
Lots of people are impressed by -fast fast- performances aka mad skillz. The result is a slew of ‘virtuoso’ music – going back through history to famous works like Flight of the Bumblebee and Sabre Dance, or piano sonatas and preludes by Scarlatti and Chopin, or Paganini’s Caprice No. 24 for violin , or many concertos – written so that artists can display their chops.
Mad skillz are celebrated in pop music (thinking Hendrix) and so remain alive today (I’m thinking of Richard Devine live just now). Here from Poland is the first performance of this new Music Sports series.
