High School Kids Cover Thriller On 11 Synthesizers, But You Won’t Believe What They Do To The Drummer!


MDD Jessheim shared this video, capturing a live synth performance of 9 Jessheim High School students, covering Michael Jackson’s classic Thriller.

The performance keeps the original vocals, but everything else is played live on 11 synths, electric drums and congas.

The students use a wide range of synths, listed below, and end the performance by dispatching the drummer in a surprisingly graphic manner.
