This Is A Video Of A Classical Pianist Improvising To Blawan’s 2011 Techno Cut, “Peaches”

Pianos and techno don't really mix.

The techno world has, for better or worse, seen its fair share of classical music crossovers. Carl Craig, for example, performs with a “synthesizer ensemble“, and Jeff Mills has made numerous jumps into more “real instrument”-oriented territory. Sometimes this fusion pays off, and sometimes it doesn’t.

Above, you’ll find yet another risky adventure into classical music with kick drums, this time featuring a live piano improvisation over Blawan‘s “Peaches”. Hey, listen. We like Rachmaninoff as much as the next guy, and you know we like Blawan. But we’ll let you form your own opinion about how the two styles fit together.
