We played Pirates of the Carribean in Wind Ensemble once; just for fun. We brought in the percussion and it was so awesome.Our conductor was jumping around everywhere. xD
and i agree with schizotango, electric organs are much more complicated.
also, kudos to the kid`s outfit lol
And I positively love Brahms.
In any capacity, i consider this douchey behaviour.
How did I know she was going to be Asian?
:D I love POTC.
AGit--Scientology? Really? I`m amused some more...
Both--Ad Hominem arguments FTW?
Mx24--Thanks for the support. BTW I haven`t actually heard Chopin and Beethoven play their stuff, so interpretation counts for something, doesn`t it? Also--"amazing" should be in quotes, signaling, "not really".
Alk3v--Thanks, but you probably think I`m a douche now too...
*fingers on Scientology alert button
It`s not amazing that you can play something out of drating guitar hero. (yyz and kansas) Hell, the kid probably has never even heard of either of the two bands that she played their song. (Aside from hearing it in guitar hero (Not that listening to a satyr baaah-ing away on the mic is that interesting))
Nor is it any more amazing that you can play any of the work of Chopin, Beethoven, etc. All in all, you`re being uncreative and playing someone else`s work.
Djer: Many Asians (including myself) are forced to take up an instrument early on. But it`s only because their parents love hearing the instrument so much. Eventually the individual inherits the passion and carries it on, or drops it. It`s hardly `exploitation`.
To all--I know that it seems that I`m trolling this site, but it has long been a source of irritation for me that any small amount of talent (not this little girl in particular, who actually has some) is considered "amazing". It is the same feeling I get when people stand around and applaud people playing "Rock Band" or "Guitar Hero" as if they have actual musical talent. I`m sorry that I`ve chosen this particular video to vent with, but I`ve finally been able to comment, as my previous email provider considered email from I-am-bored spam, and I have not been previously able to post, so it seems that I have a vendetta against this little girl. My vendetta is against everybody that underappreciates talent and overappreciates mediocrity. My vendetta is against everybody that mistakes technology for technique. Push your children to know the difference!
Just a thought: maybe the applause was so lame because Asians are just so used to their kids being amazing at everything?? Yeah, here we applaud like monkeys on meth when our kid does an ear-rotting, head-hurting, off key rendition of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. We suck.
Young girl + overwhelming talent = Asian dedication.
Watch her feet.
But, otherwise, that was AWESOME.
