No, it's definitely not a recording. It's so locked with the audio and it seems like i'm hearing the same notes that he/she is playing.

Who do u think it is?

 

Simple: Several times, he has his hands on the wrong register of the piano.

It sounds like watered down watered down Jordan Rudess. He does those lightning arpeggios but with a little more direction and purpose.

I watched it a couple of times. I think it could very well be live playing. On these Youtube compression videos it's very common for the timing to be off slightly between audo and video. I think that is the reason things aren't synced perfectly.

 

Or he just recorded some improv/loose composition and mimicked it while playing with the bedsheet. Like Carlo said, it really doesn't matter that much.

I definitely think it's Jordan Rudess.

 

In the video there is a Steinway Model D,

About a year ago when Jordan got that piano he made a little video of himself playing Silent Night off of his Christmas Sky CD. If you've seen that video the room should be a giveaway. Also the wrist angle is pretty low as you can see his right hand through the sheet sometimes.

I agree - there's very few people who could play that well (even with a sheet over their hands!)

 

Definitely JR.

Are you serious?

:freak:

 

Any college level piano performance major should be able to hang with that level of 'arpeggio madness'.
