That was one of the more creative things I've seen in some time. Thanks for posting it!

Well, hats off to the guy for getting that much independence down. That said, I was bored and clicked on to something else before he was finished.

I'd prefer a good solid kit drummer & a percussionist. Very clever but mostly impractical. The whole thing is based around using a flying bass drum to free up the feet for effects & syncopation. Cool in itself but limits the core groove potential. I'm impressed with the dedication & blue sky thinking associated with this. I certainly wouldn't have the skill, patience or inclination to do it. I'd catagorize this as complication for complication's sake. Back to my original thought. Imagine how much better a dynamic drummer and talented percussionist working in unison would sound by comparison.

I do think it went on a bit too long, but I actually thought it was very well developed musically: variations on a theme, while gradually moving from somewhat sparse to fairly dense playing.

Two pianists can play more than one, but piano solos are generally more common than duets. I agree that it felt very much like he was playing a solo as well as an accompany part, and I understand how you could see that as "complication for complication's sake," but I just see it as a choice to make the piece for one player. Considering the minimalist qualities of the "solo" part in the feet and the straightforward accompaniment with the hands, I would actually argue that the goal wasn't exactly to be complicated. (To be clear, "minimalist" here doesn't mean "playing sparsely"; I'm using it in the composition sense -- heavy repetition of key phrases, while a few different, "key" notes are the real melody. "Rhythm Song" by Paul Smadbeck is an example of this.)
