And also, did you know the marimba instrument is called a marimba and not called a xylophone? Did you know that before today?

I watched the video at least 3 times, and I’d love to see what Baku’s brain looks like while playing. I mean if you could attach a device that visualizes brain signals like science fiction movies do, ya know? Playing the marimba ( or any percussion instrument) using 4 beaters with two hands.

That also makes me think about how awesome octopuses and spiders are for operator 8 appendages. Maybe playing the marimba with 8 beaters, both hands, and both feet is the closest a human can get to thinking like an octopus or spider.

Just for fun, here’s another performance by Baku Nakata with pianist Rie Sai.
