The Cello Song

Steven Sharp Nelson released a single in May that is a variation on an old Bach classic. It’s kind of an experiment. It is a song written for one cello, but he does it with eight. Watch it above, and download the single here. (HT: Trevin Wax)

    well, it’s not an experiment, it’s an arrangement. And it’s only for 8 cellos in name. The guy who strummed could have done so on any stringed instrument, and one of the cellists (it looks like the same guy 8 times) could have just as easily been a percussionist, as he’s just playing the cello as a drum.

    Now, away from the nitpicking? That’s really cool. Thanks for posting it.
