The Kid Should See This

Nine animal sounds and Super Mario World sound effects created with a violin

Moo like a cow. Squeak like a mouse. Chirp like a cricket. Trumpet like an elephant… all with a violin. Musician Sebastiaan Kulwanowski makes it look easy in this demonstration of nine animal sounds recreated with his violin. In addition to the animals listed above, he’s also practiced a seagull, a donkey, a fly, a sparrow, and a blackbird.

In the video below, Kulwanowski recreates the Super Mario World video game music and sound effects with his violin, a playful multi-screen edit of famed Japanese music composer and sound director Koji Kondo‘s work:

Next, watch Super Mario Bros. on a marimba with four mallets and That Cello Guy: The multi-screen performances of Cremaine Booker.

Plus: Lots of videos with violins, sound effects, and animal sounds, including Adult beginner violinist – 2 years of progress in under 5 minutes and Hummingbird: Diego Stocco, Sound Magician.
