incomprehensible to me, but still fascinating

Great video about a classically trained pianist exploring the improvisatory world of bebop, and eventually writing and performing a short piece that expresses what she's learned. I freely admit I understood less than 1% of the musical concepts in the video, but I found the whole thing impossible to turn away from. The video itself is very well put-together: it has a good narrative pace and voiceover, and it makes good use of graphical elements to emphasize points being made. Very professionally done, and a pleasant experience even for an absolute musical layman-troglodyte like me.
