When you take the music out of this Michel Gondry-directed music video for The White Stripes, it looks a bit like a Sesame Street video from the 1970s. This is a “musicless” version of The Hardest Button to Button, one in a sound experiment series edited and remixed by Mario Wienerroither.

Related stop-motion: Shugo Tokumaru’s Katachi, Royal Canoe’s Bathtubs, Ben Garvin’s Magic Beard, and More (The Hunter Pixilation Project), a video inspired by Joey Ramone.

Julie Andrews and Gene Kelly play The Tapping Game… and they sing and dance, because when you have Julie Andrews and Gene Kelly on stage together, that’s what happens. This clip is from a 1965 Thanksgiving weekend variety special called The Julie Andrews Show.

The Tapping Game has proven useful for waiting rooms, grocery store lines, rainy days, and the like. Related watching: pen drumming, playing the river like a drum, and objects falling to make rhythm.

Bonus: Fred Astaire dances with drums and Gene Kelly sings and dances in the rain.

The cdza music team is at it again with the second episode of their series The Instrumentals: Intro to Drums. After introducing the drum set, drummer Allan Mednard compares and contrasts two kinds of rhythms: rock and jazz. 

It’s a great series and fun to narrate for pre-readers; the kids’ only suggestion is that we should be much closer to Allan and the drums. Play this full screen HD to see some details of what he’s playing and how. 

More cdza in the archives: The Human Jukebox and Daft Pianists.
