‘Player Piano’ Returns With New Video, Plans Live Event

Player Piano isn’t the most popular channel on YouTube, but thanks to its bright, colorful sets and some seriously impressive piano skills, it has picked up a devoted following. Now, the musical show directed by Tom Grey and starring Sonya Belousova is entering the next phase of its growth, and it’s starting with a frequent fan request. The latest video on the Player Piano channel is a cover of the “Moon Theme” from the Nes video game DuckTales.

As is the case with other Player Piano videos, the “Moon Theme” cover combines a unique, custom-designed piano with Belousova’s virtuoso performance. This time, the piano is shaped like an Nes console, in order to drum up nostalgia among the channel’s audience.

That audience has already supported Player Piano in a big way; in 2015, it delivered more than $71,000 to Grey and Belousova through Indiegogo so they could continue making videos.

Player:Piano Performs The Ultimate Star Wars Medley

After hearing the Star Wars theme song being played on guitar by Cooper Carter, we can now find out what the song sounds like when it is being played on a piano.

Concert pianist Sonya Belousova and filmmaker Tom Grey are famous for their epic recreations of geeky music on pianos. (We've featured their work a number of times on the site already.) Now they return to amaze Star Wars fans with a beautiful and slightly gentler variant of the saga’s theme song on a modular piano. During Belousova's performance, the instrument undergoes visual changes — from Darth Vader’s outfit, to the Millennium Falcon, to R2-D2. The pianist also changes her appearance and clothes that she wears to match the look of her piano.

Doctor Who: YouTube stars PlayerPiano debut spectacular theme cover

YouTube stars PlayerPiano have debuted their very special version of the Doctor Who theme - with a grand piano in Tardis blue for a suitably grand performance.

PlayerPiano is a collaboration between director Tom Grey and composer / pianist Sonya Belousova, putting a classical twist on beloved songs and soundtrack themes.

"Doctor Who is one of those unique properties that has a fanbase spanning generations," Grey told Digital Spy. "I grew up watching Tom Baker's fourth Doctor and, like everyone else, was reintroduced when the BBC began its new run in 2005.

"From a visual standpoint, I was very interested in exploring that history with the 12 different Doctors and we felt we could do a great tribute to the entire series, not just modern Doctor Who."

Belousova added: "Plus, the main theme is incredibly iconic. It was an exciting experience to explore it in a new and original way."

Mistresses Review: The Risk of Passion

  • TVfanatic
Some of Tom Grey's last words to his son were that "passion makes life worth living."

While that may ring true, it also comes with the risk of consequences. "A Kiss is Just a Kiss?" proved that nothing these Mistresses do is risk free.

After last week's at-home pregnancy test, Savi ran to her Obgyn, which gave me pause. Wasn't going to the doctor who has been counseling her and her husband for months a huge risk if she was looking to keep this quiet? Unless Savi specifically told her doc not to say anything to Harry (which would be awkward), the good doctor might give Harry her congratulations if she were ever to run into him.

So I was completely relieved when she sought out another physician for the paternity test. I can't imagine how long the three weeks will seem while she waits for the results.

If the baby is Harry's,
