Performing is professional whistler Michael Barimo – who hits the deadly high F in Mozart’s Queen of the Night Aria with ease. For more, check out a New York Times profile about him here.
Yeah, I get it. This is another cute kitty fart video. But this is what happens after the holidays, and you're catching up on all the composing you thought you'd get done, but didn't.

We’ve all heard about the story behind the Rite of Spring première riots. It was all just too much too fast for an audience wondering where Ravel went. In this video you will see Stravinsky play his famous”Rite of Spring” poly-chord for ten minutes. Phillip Glass, can relate. For those post-tonal theory geeks out there, the chord basically an Eb dominant seventh chord in first inversion played alongside a Fb major triad with the root doubled at the octave.
