Richard Rey aka Office Drummer, has a unique skill. He accepts song requests, then live streams an improvised drum beat regardless of whether or not he’s played it before. His performances include Beastie Boys’ Intergalactic, Outkast’s Hey Ya!, Green Day’s Brain Stew/Jaded, and MGMT’s Electric Feel.
Percussionist Dennis Chambers has performed with acts including Santana, Parliament/Funkadelic, George Duke, and CAB. Drumeo challenged the legendary jazz-funk musician to listen to Tool’s Schism for the first time ever, after which he improvised a killer new drum track.
Artist Edson Aurélio Hudson shows off his improvisational abilities by tossing some random hardware soaked in ink onto a sheet of paper, then incorporating those blobs of ink as the foundation for an imaginative illustration. See more of his improvised images in this compilation video.
Vlogger Tom Scott teamed up with musician and producer Beardyman to create a track in real time. Fans provided the lyrics, Tom recorded the vocals, and Beardy used a variety of digital techniques to transform it all into an energetic electronic hyperpop tune.
