Oh No! There Was Actually A Really Great “Rolling In The Deep” Cover That I Missed July 27, 2012

Posted by Michael in News.

This is actually kind of fascinating. It’s one guy doing an a cappella version, singing all parts and also doing instrumental accompaniment just with his voice. It’s split screen, so he provides helpful signs about what the various versions of himself are doing. At the end, he gives a brief fun description of how he did it.

I absolutely love the creative geniuses who put these videos together. Pomplamoose is one group, but I discovered some serendipitous music from Alaa Wardi who is a master of this format.
Although his music is in Arabic, his harmonies are completely western. Scroll through some of his pieces, just for the musicality.

This particular piece is really beautiful, and the art is a composite of living subject and paint. Exquisite agony comes to mind when describing it. A very lovely piece of music, even if you don’t understand the lyrics:

And then, of course, there’s the MASTER of the multi-track song:

You have your work cut out for you if you think you can prevent me from making IB a fanblog for “Rolling In The Deep” covers.

Just checking in. I’ve had some serious techical issues at the dbs abode recently.

What surprises me about the video in the post is that he appears to be using a reel-to-reel tape recorder. I thought all of that was digital now, and reel-to-reel tape (which used to be analog) was totally obsolete.

Did you forget to put down the toilet seat and cover?

Dude, if you live with females, you gotta do that.

I blew up the power supply on my computer. Like a loud “POP!” then everything went black. I finally got around to replacing it. I’m still going to fix the old one, but I’ll need to order a power supply first.

Make sure the fan is working right. If you’re overheating, you’ll just continue to have problems.

Also, every computer should be plugged into some kind of surge protector. Your electrical supply really isn’t very stable.

I have to blow the dust out of my computers, often.

This darn Idaho dust is like talcum powder.

Sticks to the heatsinks and causes problems.

It was plugged into a surge protector, but I bet it has some dust on the fan. I’ll check it out before we put it back to work.

I recently had a tech guy look at my computer when it failed. The fan was filthy. It’s pretty easy to take off a side cover and clean up with a can of compressed air.

Can’t imagine that a dusty fan is much of a problem – dust won’t affect the fan’s functionality. Heatsinks, on the other hand,….
