Wuki is the solo project of Denver-based producer Kris Barman. His take on Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee was created for the VR rhythm game Beat Saber.
And if you think that was fast…
In 2010 Violinist Ben Lee set the World’s Fastest Musician record for playing Flight of the Bumblee in 64.21 seconds. Flight of the Bumblebee used to be the test piece for the Guiness World Records fastest musician, but the category has since been suspended as musicians began playing the piece so fast that even slowed down it became impossible to assess their accuracy.
The record for the world’s fastest rap is currently held by Eminem for a 40 second segment of his single Godzilla where he averages 7.5 words per second.
The record for the world’s fastest drumming is held by an 11-year-old Australian, Pritish A R, averaging an incredible 39.5 beats per second.
