Frode Kvinge Flatland, also known (?) as Frodello, performs Turkish March by Mozart for stationary bike and swans.

Wow, that was silly. Kinda reminds me of some of the prop humor on early MST3K.

Silly but good.
I was in D.C. in the 80's & 90's, so when I hear that tune, I always think of The Greaseman's "Tuna Fish Song".

With my local gym closed in lock down, this is pretty much my dream right now. Any in a world where I understood the appeal of Peloton - they would be offering Frodello oodles of cash for exclusive rights.

Everybody is elsewhere furiously reading and commenting on you know what. Be patient... They will come here soon to find some respite from the madness.

So, okay, I've seen a few modular videos like this and I don't understand something: what's making the tune? Is it all pre-sequenced and they're just tweaking the sounds that would come out anyway? Or is there some magic brain-computer interface that I'm missing out out on?

Appropriately silly video, tho.

The text with the video says that the music you hear is from MIDI. He’s not playing the notes. He’s just fiddling with knobs like all good modular people, including myself, like to do.
