Videotaping with the bird

Check out the video on YouTube, Keeper of Flames, or Bilibili, 守焰人.

I have been listening to Julie Elven’s (original) Keeper of Flames for about 2 years. It becomes an urge for me as a musician to do something with such good music. Therefore, with the approval of Julie Elven herself, here comes the cover of this song in a jazzy style.
While shooting the video I had the idea of bringing Mutyi, my cockatiel, into the scene. It was the worst decision of the day, trying to get her to stay put and not fly away while also keeping up with playing the music. But that is because Mutyi is her Papa’s bird who doesn’t care much about staying next to me on the shaky stand. So I tried the other bird, Koi, and she seemed to be OK with it. Koi is also featured in the following video where she is performing a color distinguishing trick: Cockatiel Telling Colors Trick. No one on YouTube has ever done such sophisticated multi-color tricks with a cockatiel before!

Hope you enjoy the videos!
