Check this guy out, classical drumming

The classical piece was naff I thought. Just because you can doesn't mean you always should.

That said, he's clearly having a good time so more power to him.

Yeah kind of cool, but musically I've a hard time digging it.

Those few Portnoy-ish phrases wear out quickly, especially against
a classical orchestra with much more depth to it than the drum parts
in my opinion.

But what he plays he does play very well, and the rest seems to be
a matter of taste.

Wow I'm surprised. I found this to be awesome all around. As far as I can tell, he is not reading, so I think he just knows the music and feels it. I think it adds so much to the music, but to each their own.

Yeah I dug it too, nice to see a different take on a piece that has been done thousands of times. never thought I'd hear a double bass with an orchestra but alas I have been proven differently. I've seen his Mario thing many times. He has some excellent skills no doubt!
 
Kid grew up listening to a lot of Dream Theater, eh?

Cool stuff. I would love to see a really intricate and non-traditional jazz drummer do that piece...

Ted Kirkpatrick from Tourniquet did stuff like that years and years ago.

this is just one example, I think newer though:

Check out i.e. "K517" on the album "Vanishing Lessons" by Tourniquet,
from the nineties.

Not to take anything away from Andrea, but he sure isn't the first to do stuff
like that.

Yeah, he does show a lot of Portnoy influence. He was in a Dream Theater cover band for awhile, so I guess that explains it.

Vadrum is just following what others have done.
I have seen his other videos he has a lot of free time on his hands and he spends it well>
Id like to hear how he drums in an original band.

Listening to the Barber of Seville thing...I must admit, for me this would be filed under 'bizarre experimental thing that doesn't really work but is fine provided you don't listen to it much, just think about it'.*

I don't see the point of it. It doesn't appeal to me as a drummer, and as someone who likes listening to music you'd be hard pushed to find a better example of playing all over the top of something in an inappropriate fashion, so that doesn't work for me either. I think its one saving grace would be if it was funny...but sadly it's not. Oh dear.



*I agree my filing system could probably do with some work.

It kinda reminded me of E.L.P. meets Warner Bros. cartoons.
