Luke Pickman is a multi-instrumentalist who is reinterpreting the classic music of Thomas & Friends. Known as Instrument Maniac on YouTube, he pieces videos of himself playing multiple instruments to create a virtual orchestra. We talk to him about how he creates these new arrangements and why the music of Thomas & Friends deserves to be reviewed. This is a continuation of our conversation with Thomas & Friends composer Mike O’Donnell.
See his work on YouTube, and check out a sample of his music below.
We also review the newly released book “Steam in the Family” by Avril Rowlands. You can purchase your copy here.
