Musical genius

CanadaSam Tsui is a Yale student; he’s a singer, and through the magic of video editing, a vocal group too.  With the help of his friend Kurt Schneider (the guy standing on the far left), he created the following medley as a tribute to Michael Jackson. I would not call this ‘opportunistic’ because I understand it was done a month before MJ’s death, but even if it was… it’s one of the most impressive videos I’ve seen in a while…
 
On a side note, Tsui reminds me of a colleague from Colombia. I kept watching and watching the video wondering “who is it that he looks like?” until it finally hit me! :-)
 
Going back to the video, and the music… I said it before in that sort of obituary I published back in June. Jackson was, in my opinion, a musical genius, probably the most influential musician since the Beatles, or along with them. This video by Sam Tsui is every bit as amazing as Jackson’s talent was. I stand corrected, there’s still a lot of new, creative stuff for us to find on the internet.

Sam Tsui es un estudiante de Yale; cantante,  y gracias a la magia de la edición de videos, también un sexteto vocal. Con la ayuda de su amigo Kurt Schneider (el que aparece parado a la izquierda de su pantalla, señora) creó el video que aparece arriba como tributo a Michael Jackson. No diría que este video es ‘oportunista’ porque tengo entendido que lo hizo un mes antes de la muerte de MJ, pero aunque haya sido después… es uno de los videos más increíbles que he visto en mucho tiempo…
 
A propósito, Tsui me recuerda a un colega de Colombia. Me la pasé mirando y mirando el video pensando “pero a quién me hace acordar este tipo?” hasta que por fin me di cuenta! :-)
 
Volviendo al video, y a la música… Lo dije antes en esa especie de obituario que escribí en Junio pasado. Jackson fue en mi opinión un genio musical, tal vez el músico más influyente desde los Beatles, o mejor aún, junto a ellos. Este video que hizo Tsui es tan genial como el talento de Jackson era. Me tengo que corregir de algo que he dicho muchas veces, porque es evidente que todavía quedan cosas nuevas y creativas para ver en internet.

  1. Michael was a troubled man, but there's no doubt in my mind that he was talented. What a great video! That's probably one of the best MJ medleys I've ever heard.

  2. Wow that was really good. Wonder what editing program they used to get all those versions of him on the stage at the same time?

  3. This guy is brilliant. I saw other videos of him shot in the same way, and even a live presentation on TV (on the Bonnie Hunt show)...
