Cat Pianist

Remember the Jeffin Rodegheri and Cat duo from a couple of weeks ago? Here is another video featuring the same feline pianist. Once again, the playing is quite musical, and the cat’s adorable cooing adds a nice touch.

Regular readers know I have long been intrigued by these feline musicians. This is one of the best musically, along with Nora. Nue and the rest of the Rock cats are a lot of fun. The OG Keyboard cat was human-directed, so not quite the same (though I adore him and his successors as well). Do you have any favorite musical cats?

Jeffin Rodegheri and Cat duo

A duo featuring Jeffin Rodegheri and a very serious cat on keyboard. Found via ScottsBassLessons.com on Facebook.

This music score deserves an Oscar 😹🙌

This cat’s musicality is impressive, and works well with the harmony and counterpoint from the bass.

CatSynth Pic: Cat and Nord Keyboard

Cute cat with a Nord keyboard. From Man-l Adsr on Facebook.

Clearly, this cat has great taste in keyboards (this looks to be an early Nord Electro). We also see some of those stickers identifying names and notes of keys that we have seen a few other recent keyboard photos.

The “FIMO HK 200” border is apparently from FIMO, a film-emulator app for iOS and Android. It looks a lot like the Hipstamatic app I have been using for years – I will definitely check it out.

I think it’s interesting that they added these notation and name overlays to the keys.

CatSynth Video: Katy’s Organ Solo

Another organ solo by Katy. I leave the instrument turned on so that I can practice spontaneously, so every once in a while we get to hear these brilliant little improvisations… often at the most inappropriate times.I should note that her pedal technique is extraordinary, probably better than my own. Think what I could do with four feet!

Katy performs an organ solo. Apparently, she has been practicing quite a bit.

Identification of the keyboards left as an exercise to the reader 😺🎹

CatSynth Video: Sarper Duman and his Cats

Sarper Duman returns to CatSynth with one of his beautiful serenades with his cats 😻. From his Facebook page.

If you want to wake up to every new day with a real and unconditional love, adopt an animal.. Even if they don’t see, even if they’re missing a leg, they have no handicap in loving and being loved.. 🖤🐈🎹

Her yeni güne gerçek, çıkarsız bir sevgiyle başlamak istiyorsanız, hayvan sahiplenin.. Görmeseler de, bir bacakları eksik de olsa, sevmeye, sevilmeye hiçbir engelleri yok.. 🖤🐈🎹

The moment where the tabby crawls onto the keyboard is priceless!

Our feline pals Shadow and Brodie are back!  And they appear to be hard at work on their next hit song as they sit at their keyboard – an M-Audio Axiom – together.  Submitted by Anne Corwin via our Facebook page.
