Strange that I know this. If you want to ever meet Lam Duan, she lives at ElephantsWorld in Kanchanaburi.
Thank you to everyone else for not riding elephants and please visit them in a habitat or "retirement facility" like this one.
50% weird, 100% beautiful
This reminds me of my first ever piano recital. It was a recital for my mum and, while she wasn't blind, she was very overweight and mostly unresponsive throughout the entire performance.
I think she likes it.
I wanna see someone play Doom's BFG division for this pachyderm.
I have to be back at work in 6 hours and I'm watching an elephant listening to classical music. I should be asleep.
Anyone know the title of the first piece?
why did this make me cry?
I love this video better
It’s amazing how intricate their trunks are.
That was beautiful.
I’m not an expert on elephants but, I am an audio engineer.
Elephants have a hearing range of 14hz to 12kHz(k=1000) compared to the 20hz-20kHz that humans hear. This elephant will hear/feel more bass frequencies and less high frequencies than we do when we listen. It probably sounds very warm and comforting to her.
I’m not sure if being blind for a substantial amount of time has given her a heightened sense of sound but, either way, this is a cool video.
If the elephant is EDITblind could it be that the music was overwhelming it's ability to sense the world around it so it stayed around out of confusion?
Pianist’s name is Paul Barton. This is a pretty good interview on why he plays music for blind elephants.
Anyone know the names of the pieces?
and I almost cried. Wonderful video
There is no one on this planet who can tell me they feel nothing when songs like these are played. I simply don’t believe that any human can hear that and not feel an emotion... any emotion...
This made me emotional. Love it.
Anybody know what the 2nd and 3rd pieces of music are?
For some reason the thought of a blind elephant makes me immensely depressed
I know next to nothing about classical music, but that first piece sounded like he was playing scales with a basic-bitch melody. Is that feeling off-point?
Edit: I've seen horns played for cows, Bach (and others) on piano played for an elephant, and cartwheels for dolphins. When can we see 'Raining Blood' played for Silver-Backs?
He had the opportunity to play Baby Elephant Walk for an elephant but he played Bach instead?
Sorry mate. She's deaf as well.
Someone please remake this with the Taylor swift song
