So You Think You Can Conduct

I suppose if they made a reality TV competition for conducting, this young man would definitely make the finals (thnx to Nicklcat for the referral). The only problem is that so much goes on in conducting that is not immediately visible to the eye. So here, it’s more like watching someone dance. Anyone recall Xavier Le Roy’s “Rite”? At least this kid is far more interesting to watch, and far less pretentious than the Frenchman.

To be clear, I’m definitely not hating on this guy. Not knowing anything about him, other than that he clearly loves to video himself conducting to audio recordings, I can’t speak to his intentions. The baton strikes me as authentic, as does the unidentifiable bust (of a composer, presumably) in the background.

But who knows, maybe he’ll move on to do great things as a conductor. If recent times proves anything, a little unrestrained passion can go a long way.
