Street Musician Makes Incredible Music With No Band

There’s a street musician in Spokane who uses a loop pedal and an electric violin–which looks like something Giger designed–to make gorgeous, rich sounds all on his own.

It’s incredible to watch–especially for someone like me, who has only the barest amount of coordination required to walk and talk at the same time–but more importantly, it’s incredible to listen to. You don’t expect to see or hear such a thing on a street corner, but this guy knows how to take his talents and make them heard; he always draws a crowd.

Check out the video, and if you know his name or where he’s from, let us know.

    I could on guitar play the harmony for him, and he on violin has to STICK to me and do INGENOIUS moves ONLY on those chords like A minor D minor and something, e major, yea, and back to the start:

    SHOLAUM OLEYCHEM, Malachei HASHOOORES, Malachei E e e e lio… OYN !!!


    Ani Ohev Etchem. Toda Raba. I love you all, Jews, thank you, and slicha, I am sorry, for I did def leppard initely haha NOT intend to BRAG here and say I’d be the only one and such megalomaniacacy. BUT we need to be more on our feet, not just in the military, I admire it, the Israeli one, but foremostly, the civilian People, they have to unite, AND ARE united against the so-called “anti-israel” meshugge crazy alkaida hamas hizbolla jihad-uncritical world press. !

    ok so i take shower go shoppin and record this song in my both jekkish and almost chassidic fashion, I am definitely not a chassid, but they are VERY nice People, totally, boa, mega da RESPECT do I have from them. No, my pronouncement of Hebrew, when I sing the “oulde” songs, is both jekkish, germanish, and eastern-european style as the Jews there pronounced Hebrew: ” ElijOYN! “. So cool. and also the jekkish: ” SHOLAUM”. also ” ISH KOOCH ! ” for ISH E KOYECH, in eastern, “poylish” lingo. :=) — and with of course the second, classically defined, the “third” voice accompaniment to the first voice line, and all intervals perfect, and very nicely sung still by me, I still got my mezzo sopran, soprano, and my bariton voice, but not that ultra-strong nicely longly shouting, reverbing monstervoice in the mid tone section, since my nose was broken and lip split by antisemite hitler-praising young muslims who live in germany and come from tunesia/algeria and turkey. another turk is a good ol friend, but also he came up with a vid “he liked”, an “astrologic” vid with a BLUE painted doof man, who says, ” THE JEWS COME FROM MARS, F… UP THEIR PLANET, AND ARE EVIL AND TRY TO INFILTRATE EARTH…” -.– eXACT NAZI IDEOLOGY. THE ULTRA-EVILEST LIE: JEWS WOULD be BAD. TYPICAL, that it comes from sudo-“astrologic”, “ESOTERIC” videos who course, cruise and curse the internet. This IS NOT an “INFORMATION” war, and so haha alex jones is wrong entitling his very site like that, no: IT IS only primarily an “information war”, true, but behind that, and already in front of that, and on all sides of it, there’s much more. Yea, info is all. Oh funny. So you can brainwash anyone into anythang or what. But in our time, you’d think we’d have it better, that the world would be juster than thousands of years ago, well, realising that that IS NOT so, totally not, I think, that for example, on one hand, yahoo CAN sadly abusively brainwash LOTS of people AGAINST israel — against ITS GOVERNMENT — AND also AGAINST ITS PEOPLE: JEWS. Which of course, yahoo and reuters and the world press, which I have realised to be corrupt, in fact, will not admit as of NOW. … ! OF COURSE, I DO have the FEELING, that the world NOW AGAIN tries TO LURE ALL JEWS into A FALSE SENSE OF SECURITY and SAFETY, SAFETY, BARE SAFETY, aCTUALLY !!!

    don’t call me a madshouter now, when then 33 repeats, either here and there, or bigtime, anywhere. we have to prevent it, organise all countries in the world against racism, which ALSO means strictly isolating the world against CHINA’S government, BAM. SORRY, I cannot be UNFRANK HERE. china since 1949: = nazi germany. period.

    I would hold speeches, that drag all Arabs toward us, into us, but I would clearly say, that I take only the good ones. I have a simple language. Now. I can also talk intellectual style, but I feel at home here, among Jews, and in the sad reality, I still have to move all my REAL stuff to ISRAEL, which I hope I can without big cost do, at all.

    How I’d like to be a program, which can travel the world in a second!

    But other People than Jews might abuse the future avatar-tech for evil, for furhter VIETNAMS and GENOCIDES against FALUNGONG (four million murdered and organexcised while alive 1999-2007 by the chinese gestapo “OFFICE 610” in around 1000 concentration camps all over china on the command of JIANG ZEMIN, Falun Gong deported there via TRAINS and masstortured there in most gruesome sexual abuse and extreme torture including ways. The ultra-rightwing AND ultraleftwing extremes ARE BOTH mad, BUT: the rightwing extreme IS a TOTAL RACIST. and therefore absolute evil. I have myself, and with surviving, delved into my own hell, and not only that. I have revealed, that the swiss secret service is a nice, but stupid, paranoid dog, a good, but a dumb one, but a strong one, one of those big bottle carrying bearmuffs of a winterhound … :) for WILLY TELL and “NUT’n’YAHOO”, but NOT FOR YAHOO, as someone on it called BIBI like that, BIBI, my HABIBI !!! :)

    In a halfbent, easy-goin young Patton-ish Salute to Israel and the Jewish People Am Sheli Erez Shelanu, sincerely yours, Bashana Habaa Birushalaym we be Tel Aviv, Spring Hill, Jafe? be SAN FRANCISCO al HAMAJIM…. :)

    … On the other hand, foremostly in Egypt, democracy should prevail, and not the abusive fanaticism of the “muslim” “brotherhood”. In Syria, neither Assad, nor “JIHAD”- and ALKAIDA-near TERRORIST rebels should prevail and win.

    In Israel, totally most of things of the “system” ARE ok. I would SURELY NOT mess around with ANYTHING in such a good system of such a good Government, the only good One on Earth, and please, all People who read this and are not Jewish or Israeli, please believe me when I say, that I don’t speak so positively about Israel BECAUSE I AM Jewish. TOTALLY NOT !!!! I COULD BE HINDU OR MUSLIM and I would PRAISE ISRAEL and THE JEWS. I could be, and am to a quarter, a Huguenot Christian.
