I am all for creative videos. We want to thank the Piano Guys for letting Ydraw be apart of this video. It stretched us a bit., but the end result was so worth it. It was an experience for everyone involved. Each person doing something a little bit new, and a little bit outside of their comfort zones. That’s how we learn and grow though isn’t it? Our experience with them was great and we hope that you all enjoy their new video as much as we do. Read below to hear how The Piano Guys came up with their idea below.
So how did The Piano Guys come up with this concept? This is what they had to say about it on their website:
As we began our arrangement of One Direction’s “Story of My Life” we wanted it to feel like each note of the music was a word in a vivid story being told. When writing a song sometimes you just need a little spark. That catalyst came from a piece of classical music – one that had such a “storybook feel” to it that we gleaned inspiration from it: Saint-Saëns’ “Aquarium” from his Suite “Carnival of the Animals.” It’s an incredibly beautiful and transportive piece.
So who are The Piano Guys? Well if you haven’t heard about them yet, I’m glad we were the reason you stumbled upon them, because they are fantastic. The Piano Guys are a group of musicians based out of St. George, Utah. A piano shop owner was looking for a new marketing idea for his product and was also interested in viral videos. A few musicians later, and they were creating their own amazing music and videos, and they’ve been an internet phenomenon since and with tour dates all over the country, even some international. Go ahead and read more about them.
