The Kid Should See This

Pachelbel’s Chicken & other chicken instrument performances

If you never thought you’d hear Pachelbel’s Canon played on screaming yellow rubber chicken dog toys, you’re in luck: Musician Eddy Chen of the Australian duo Two Set Violin squawks out the famous composition by composer Johann Pachelbel in this multi-screen video.

Via Open Culture, Two Set Violin—Chen and musician Brett Yang, veterans of the Sydney and Queensland Symphony Orchestras—has an entire playlist of chicken instrument videos, including Erik Satie’s Gymnopedie No. 1 on piano and chicken:

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky‘s Waltz of the Flowers on violin and chicken:

And a piano and chicken version of Ludwig van Beethoven‘s Für Elise:

Follow this with Marbles & Magnets synchronized to Tchaikovsky’s Waltz of the Flowers, nine animal sounds and Super Mario World sound effects created with a violin, and That Cello Guy: The multi-screen performances of Cremaine Booker.

Bonus: Maywa Denki’s Otamatone Instruments.
