Starting the video a bit later to avoid the god-baggery they included in the beginning.  :)

Leave it to the Piano Guys to concoct something as neat as this.

 

I’m so happy with the Piano Guys.  They are making music “cool” and fun to do, I’m sure they inspiring many to relight their musical passions and get back to the instrument to continue work on the 10,000 hours required to achieve mastery.  ;)

 

Notes Video:

We composed this arrangement with the story of the video in mind — a tense beginning building up the intrigue, a back-and-forth theme traded between violin and cello implying the partner-agent roles, lasers, the “reveal” moment of Jon, rappelling, and the hectic, scrambled ending. We wanted a little more thematic material to work with, so in addition to some original material, we merged Mission: Impossible with the first movement of Mozart’s “Piano Sonata in C” (here’s a recording of the original: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JcUh-ggBfzI). But, of course, we sped it up, transposed it into A minor and changed the time signature to 5/4! It became Jon’s “villain theme.” And yes, Jon is really playing THAT fast. At the end in order to create a musical feeling of “pandemonium” we wrote the piano part, reversed it and randomized the notes, tweaking them until they clicked. And for you rhythm enthusiasts, at times you’ll hear a 4/4 time signature in the percussion imposed on the 5/4 timing to add to the intrigue and mayhem!

Oh, those Piano Guys have been busy.  Enjoy!
