These Drones Are Playing Music, They’re Good

Check this band of drones playing “Thus Spoke Zarathustra,” “Carrol of the Bells” and the national anthem. See their sharply choreographed whirling, pulling and landing on electric keyboards, bells of some sort and a one-string electric slide guitar contraption equipped with a bass drum, a snare drum and two crash symbols. There’s even a very climactic GONGGGGGG at the end.
