    Never heard of this bloke until yesterday but was offered a ticket to one of his show last night and he completely blew me away. He's a phemonenally talented pianist and composer who blends piano with electronica (hence often listened to by aged ravers like me).

    It's a bit noodly, so might not appeal to everybody, but well worth checking out. Ideally at a fairly loud volume, through a decent pair of headphones. Made my commute this morning unusually blissed out.

    I’ve seen him twice. Once in Toronto and at the louvre in Paris. My mate managed to get one of the brushes he uses in his live performances :lol:

    He’s brilliant though.

    Nice work! The bit where he bashes the strings on the grand piano is great. The man has skills.

    It's not often you see someone produce something so interesting with a toilet brush in each hand.

    Heh! I only just noticed that they're toilet brushes. Strange choice of implement. I'm sure there's a logic in there somewhere. He builds/modifies all his instruments himself. The piano playing in the second half of that vid is mega. I really want to learn the piano now.

    My girlfriend and I managed to get seats at one of his two shows in Copenhagen recently. He's just super talented, it's fascinating watching him run around the stage to get everything to fit together.

    Love his music. Wanted to get tickets to see him live, but they sold out at once over here.
