that was on that Talent Show thing a few years back. I think it was on fox or something. The only reason I remember it was cause it seemed almost every other person on there set themselves on fire somehow

I wonder if that "keyboard" is actually just one huge MIDI trigger pad and every time he hits it it just plays the next note in the sequence...

Yea, there's no way you can do that, it looks fake, and plus you can see sometimes the balls hitting the keyboard are not synchronized to the sound coming out.

It's a midi trigger. The inaccuracies are
a result of midi misfires.

Yeah, it's more than likely fake. But you have to admit, it's pretty f'n cool to watch. And there are people that would probably actually be able to do something like that with enough practice. It's all about coordination and timing.
