The most rhythmically complex beatbox jam ever

Sit back and watch this dude beatbox ‘The Dance of Eternity’ by Dream Theater. Features 108 time changes, with flashcards to keep you on track. (Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy has given this piece his personal stamp of approval.)

Performer’s notes:

When I said “of which there are 108,” I meant 108 changes, or shifts, not 108 different time signatures.

At 1:56 when I hesitated to switch the cards to indicate “3/4,” the time does change at the moment I began to change it.

At 6:49, the “7/8” card I drew was shown three eighth notes too late (a mistake I often made in my several attempts).

The Dance of Eternity is a part of Dream Theater’s album Metropolis Part 2: Scenes from a memory released in 1999, and is the copyrighted property of its owner(s).
