flute loops

March 31, 2008

and now for something completely different.




  1. ScatteredFL on April 22, 2008 at 5:13 pm

    Awesome! If he was truly playing that while moving that much, then he really deserves props, especially with the flutter-tonguing, thats a hard technique to master for most…

  2. axrinekey on April 8, 2008 at 4:31 am

    That’s…. incredibly amazingg!!!

    I played flute in my primary school band, too xDD
    But this is… far too amazing!!! โค

  3. Zanga1221 on April 7, 2008 at 5:10 am

    woah! i use to play the flute but never thought of doing that! thats awesome!! xD

  4. twix on April 7, 2008 at 12:12 am

    This is one of the most awesome thing I’ve ever seen online for a while!!!! The other was an elephant from Burma painting a picture of … an elephant. Believe that?! (search it on youtube and you’ll see what I mean, lol)

    Thanks for sharing the vid, Mike.


  5. Jhuryn on April 3, 2008 at 4:22 pm

    Killer Muppet Song! I love this post!

    I don’t even want to know how much spit is in that flute… sick.

  6. analoggirl on April 3, 2008 at 1:42 pm

    A beatboxing flute player who can do a mash-up of the Muppets and Star Wars themes?

    Now THAT’s a hybrid theory. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. clara110 on April 3, 2008 at 9:44 am

    now… this is completely:


    would love to be able to play like that..xP

  8. So_S on April 3, 2008 at 9:28 am

    I will continue to check back & do continue to post more.

    “A talented soul i love so dear. Found!” =D


    23:42 – Singapore time.

  10. limerinnie on April 3, 2008 at 8:46 am

    Hi Mike!~

    This is Irene, from SINGAPORE!
    I was just surfing online randomly searching for your pictures & chance right upon into your blog.
    How cool can that be?

    Anyway, i was checking your post last time BUT, you only started a regular blogging in late november. Which is, AFTER linkin park concert in Singapore. What a pity. Would be lovely to read update about that concert. I was there! Sitting at top right side from the stage. Though i wasnt really near to the stage, but i really enjoyed myself then & couldnt get enough of you guys.

  11. AnVanoppens on April 3, 2008 at 7:38 am

    hey Mike! what’s up

    i just got back, and read your post (yea it’s late i know ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    if i wouldn’t be on a sucky pc right now, i could watch your video..but i can’t so, it sucks ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    well, anyways, thank you for posting, i hope i’ll be able to see it as soon as i can..

    hope to hear from you again soon, thanks again ^^

    bye x โ™ฅ LOVE YOU


  12. Ravaging_Hamster on April 3, 2008 at 12:26 am

    holy monkeys!!!! thats crazy!!!!! thats talent right there!!!!!!

  13. Heshotmedown on April 3, 2008 at 12:05 am

    You gotta be kiding me o.O He’s playing AND doing beatbox? Hilarious… xD

    I know this whole link posting thing is kinda stupid, but this vid is just awesome, still the best one I found on YT, even better than I’m fucking Matt Damon ;o) Check it out if you want, if not, fine too ^.^ Just thought that could be something funny for ya

  14. linkinparc on April 2, 2008 at 10:49 pm

    is he doing that ALONE?


  15. ShadowerLiltani on April 2, 2008 at 10:16 pm

    He seems to be rather popular. He was spitting so much like, spit and energy into that flute that I actually started laughing uncontrolably at one point. But anyways, that was mad cool. I can’t do that, and he made me wish I could do that. listens to her mother’s boyfriend snore loudly thin walls… neighboring bedroom… tendancy to hear EVERYTHING. Nothing like watching a video of a dude with a flute at 1:20 am.

  16. nillp on April 2, 2008 at 7:13 pm

    passing to wish u a great night.. (:

    see u & take care. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    love ya ~ โ™ฅ


  17. lynndarwinharris on April 2, 2008 at 4:33 pm

    I have been sick for the past 2 days—however, this really brightened up my day!!! Thanks Mike!!!

  18. Xenith on April 2, 2008 at 3:48 pm

  27. Curiosa on April 1, 2008 at 6:13 pm

    lol Mike, would you like to borrow my flute? Here. :)~ lol

    Dang, didn’t think that was possible. Not bad, just wish the flute sound was clearer & not so “airy”.

  28. nillp on April 1, 2008 at 5:47 pm

    yeah, mike.. where’s ur april foolโ€™s day joke?! just waiting.. lol

  29. Melissa on April 1, 2008 at 4:02 pm



    You know when you post these videos, I send them to my mates over msn and they think I spend loads of time on youtube.

    That everyday regular guy song has became, pretty much our theme tune!

  30. SteppinRazor on April 1, 2008 at 3:19 pm

    I don’t think they’d let you bring eggs into the venue, WTF. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Beatboxing flute? TOTALLY made of win!
    Personally I was really impressed by this, partly because I was supposed to play the flute in high school but begged my way to “second percussionist” instead because I couldn’t manage to produce sounds with the flute.

  31. YourConscience on April 1, 2008 at 3:18 pm

    Props to ILO…

    And NOFACE… I kind of saw it comming, but thanks for sharing. =D

    Hope everyone has a WONDERFUL day!!!

  36. petiterocker on April 1, 2008 at 1:46 pm

  50. Ilo on April 1, 2008 at 7:49 am

    Absolutly amazing! I know how difficult it is to play the flute normal……but to play it this way is absolutly amazing!!! I canยดt stop watching the movie. I need to show it to my niece, sheยดs learning playing the flute right now, she will be inspired!

  59. NoFace on April 1, 2008 at 2:45 am

    LOL, I wanna see you and that flute together.

    so the Mike Shinoda clan on LPU is celebrating St. Noda’s day this April 1st. Just so you know. Cheers!

  60. Ezza on April 1, 2008 at 1:51 am

    omg. that is fully sick as!!!….i like the starwars stuff with the hip hop edge to it its sweet…:)

  61. soyuneik on April 1, 2008 at 12:50 am

    I wanna steal him and make him play the Star Wars theme as I walk around …exactly like the episode of family guy where peter wishes for his own theme song. ‘Ridin on the bus, ridin on bus, sitting next to bums, there’s an open seat, hope that isn’t pee…..’

  62. Noe_Kenji on April 1, 2008 at 12:13 am

    WoooooooW!! I really like it!!!!!! Who is this man Mike??? Pretty cool!!!
    That’s makes me think…do you know Vanessa Mae? She’s very good too! Itโ€™s not the same as this man but, indeed she takes classics & play them by her way and..it sounds pretty good!!! The Production is fantastic!!!
    http://fr.youtube.com/watch?v=ANZ45vCCUe0 you should download it because it’s too good to be heard in youtube… hope you will enjoy it as me… ๏Š the song is called SABRE DANCE you have to listen it Mike!!
    There is many others ๐Ÿ™‚

    Enjoy it and let me know what you think about it!
    Have a nice day Mike ๐Ÿ™‚

    With all my love and my respect,

  63. Kira on March 31, 2008 at 11:55 pm

    It has just occurred to me that Flute Loop is the name of a track off of the Beastie Boys’ Ill Communication. I’m sure you already know that though, right?

  64. Dori on March 31, 2008 at 10:37 pm

    Wow! That was pretty cool!

  65. YourConscience on March 31, 2008 at 9:57 pm

    Once again, you’ve managed to come across something so seemingly insane, yet somehow so unbelievable cool. Thanks for sharing hun. =D

  66. shinoda_me on March 31, 2008 at 9:54 pm

    WOW! that was nice …
    i’ve never really heard the western flute…
    its only now that i know the difference of sound between the Indian and Western flute …
    nice stuff…
    @ MASA … thanks for the translation …. ๐Ÿ™‚ someday i hope to read, write and speak Japanese! =) …

  67. Squishy_Ho on March 31, 2008 at 8:22 pm

    whoa that was way cool. i loved how he always used his own voice to make sounds. at first i thought it was harmonics cause it was really well blended.

  68. Princess_MuzikChik on March 31, 2008 at 8:17 pm

    I play flute too =] SOOOOO wish i could do that!!! =]
    Yeah the inspector gadget one is awesome =]
    Pure brilliance =D

  69. Masa on March 31, 2008 at 8:00 pm

    To NILLP. Sure, but I am wondering if Mike wants to keep it as a secret code or something like that. So I want Mike to delete this comment if he needs to. That Japanese means (Although I cannot read and speak Japanese, the written word in Japanese is more rad, my brother translated this into Japanese). However this Japanese expression is ungrammatical. I would say (ๆ—ฅๆœฌ่ชžใฏ่ชญใ‚ใชใ„ใ—ๆ›ธใ‘ใ‚‚ใ—ใชใ„ใ‘ใฉใ€ๆ—ฅๆœฌ่ชžใงๆ›ธใ„ใฆใ‚ใ‚‹ใปใ†ใŒๆ ผๅฅฝใ„ใ„ใ‹ใ‚‰ใ€ๅผŸใซใ“ใ‚Œใ‚’้€š่จณใ—ใฆใ‚‚ใ‚‰ใฃใŸ). This is much better. However his brother has done awesome job and it is pretty enough for what it is I think. Hope it helps.

  70. Reem on March 31, 2008 at 7:51 pm

    wow he’s really good, I agree with whoever said that guy should come do his thing in the next FM album,if there’s gonna be one soon.Where do you find these?lol,thanks for sharing, i thought he was creative and different, i’v never seen anyone do that,i’ve heard such meldoy before though,but yeah thanks again.Have a good day,Peace.

  71. _JaSoN_ on March 31, 2008 at 7:04 pm


  72. Kira on March 31, 2008 at 6:56 pm

    For some reason this made me think of Miri Ben-Ari.

  73. alyeska39 on March 31, 2008 at 6:43 pm

    i’ve seen some of this guy’s other stuff, like the flight of the bumblebee one and the inspector gadget one, but it’s still pretty cool. flute’s hard. i play trombone and have dabbled in flute. i’m gonna have to learn eventually, but for now i can only play one scale.

  74. nillp on March 31, 2008 at 6:29 pm

    ~…changing completely the subject…~

    masa, as u’r japanese, could u PLEASE tell me the meaning of that line below ‘mikeshinoda.com’?

    ^[since mike is never going to answer.. :P]^

    thank u so much, anyways. (:

  75. Masa on March 31, 2008 at 6:16 pm

    I am a Japanese and happy to say that you and your work has totally changed the course of my life in a sense. I cannot express the depth of my gratitude in words so I would like to ask you to check this MV that I made. This film is dedicated to you and what I can do to let you know my existence. I AM HERE to respect you. Anyway, so sorry this comment is nothing to do with your diary and if it bothered you and others here. That clip was pretty cool as always. ใ“ใฎไฝœๅ“ใ‚’ๆฐ—ใซๅ…ฅใฃใฆใใ‚ŒใŸใ‚‰ใ†ใ‚Œใ—ใ„ใ€‚ใ‚ใ‚ŠใŒใจใ†ใ€‚

  103. kaosgirl on March 31, 2008 at 12:16 pm

    first of all…..nice witty title mike.

    i’ve got to give that guy serious props. star wars music is in a weird key and its especially hard to hit on a flute. not to mention his range. great find. i’ve got to go watch his other videos on youtube now
