Phenomenal video Saturday: Radiohead, ondes Martenot edition

I’ve been waiting, like, days to post this video, because it’s phenomenal, you see, and I have to reserve such phenomenal videos for Saturday. I guess. First iteration of PVS is right here.

This week we have a performance of Radiohead‘s “How to Disappear Completely,” a favorite of mine, performed live by Thom Yorke, Johnny Greenwood and approximately three other people. The latter four play the ondes Martenot, the instrument the band uses to make really creepy noises/music. It made me wonder, though, how one becomes proficient at such an instrument. Ondes Martenot school? The cONDEServatory? They don’t offer any classes at my school. How odd!

If you get bored easily, fast forward to 3:15. The video picks up soon after.
