In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

  18. DaimonTrilogy sagt:

    Even a noisy washing machine can be music in other guys ears. It depends on perception.

  19. Lili Barrera sagt:

    Purplegreen45 whatever floats your boat

  20. Purplegreen45 sagt:

    The higher pitches don’t come at a certain time, he said specifically that none of the rhythms were repeated either.

  21. Hannah Mary sagt:

    You guys are so nice calling each other honey and sweetie

  22. CreativeSam sagt:

    Apparently you have been only listening to the super popular hits, which of course follow (most) the safest money making route and don’t really innovative. But music ain’t just the super popular hits is it? Search deeper and you will find incredible musicians today.

    Btw the ’song‘ in the video is not music. It’s basically a sequence of meaningless frequencies disconnected from each other. What you heard is as much music as your noisy washing machine.

  23. sunflower tracey sagt:

    sweetie i did

  24. tracey honey please listen to the piano piece again

  25. Kreem Meem sagt:

    Luke DeLeon Why? Serious question.

  26. Eduardo Montiel sagt:

    I honestly loved it

  27. Manasvi Shakamuri sagt:

    I like it too! I found something special about it. it was unpredictable and also had some bits that actually had melody. I imagined it as a background music with a mysterious environment.

  28. Lili Barrera sagt:

    Zack Darshon that’s because it isn’t music, there trying to replicate it on the piano for if we could hear the ‚ping‘ this is what it would sound like on piano

  29. FuzzyWuzaCat sagt:

  34. MarcusIsI sagt:

    Potato Gaming that’s more a scale than a key

  35. The Mad Hatter sagt:

    Yeah, I can see how they could get a copyright claim if they re-uploaded Jake Paul’s music.

  36. mynameis bob sagt:

  37. Tornado House sagt:

  39. Austin Wallace sagt:

    I actually found this to be quite enjoyable. Am I alone in this?

  40. Jeonghan Trash sagt:

  41. Random Commenter sagt:

  42. Corrosive One sagt:

    Lua Cax hey, if it pays…

  43. *can’t believe I’ve accepted to play this thing*

  44. Hippie Whovian sagt:

    Did anyone else hear a gurgling sound throughout the entire video? It was like someone slurping their drink or something.

  45. Luke DeLeon sagt:

    As a pianist, this *triggered* the hell out of me.

  46. sunflower tracey sagt:

    there is no ugly music

  47. Rickson Geometry Dash sagt:

    I like the fact that its unpredictable… Unlike most music nowadays


    Am i the only one who liked it?
    It was really cool.
    Like that could be the skeleton of a really jazzy piece.
    And once you add words and more patternifying notes, you could actually get some really nice jazz, or gospel type music.
    Even by itself, i liked it.
    (Maybe i am an alien jamming to it)
    Yeah but seriously. I liked it.
