Here’s a fun video of a prelude by Johann Sebastian Bach performed entirely with boomwhackers by a group from France in 2015. (We listened to fugues in class by Bach, and he wrote an introductory piece to precede each one: a prelude.)

Enjoy!

  1. This was a beautiful performance because it was something i never seen before. It was also on point and looked very complicated so i am also amazed by the performers.

  2. I truly enjoyed this performance. I give credit and respect to those musicians, it takes time and skill to pull off what they just did.The way they were able to move around and interchange the instruments to one another was actually entertaining to watch. I looked online and the instrument used is called boomwhackers and their part of the percussion family.

  3. The video was entertaining to watch with the choreography and the movement it shows how creative human can be with recreating musics out of other unique instruments which will take a lot of practice and coordination that many individuals will have a hard time pulling off. The boom whacker can be consider a wacky instruments due to how colorful and they way it’s uses make this instruments more of a toy then a traditional musical instruments.

  4. I never see some kind of show is like this, this is my first time to watch show like this. They didn’t use any musical instruments. They only use the different kind of colored tubes to hit, and make the sound. It’s so cool, and it’s very special. I think size of tubes can make different sound.

  5. I can’t say much for the music, but the acrobatics were neat. They did, however, seem to constrain the tempo.

    Just because you can do something in an unexpected way doesn’t add much to the music, and maybe is a distraction, but it was fun to watch.
