Ever heard the saying, it is so easy you can do it in your sleep? This video takes that old saying to a whole new level.
The young lady in this video is playing the piano. If you listen closely, you can hear the melody. But if you look closely, you’ll notice that she is fast asleep! You may not believe it, but this young lady has sleepwalked her way to the piano to play a tune.
The 12-year old pianist is known to sleepwalk from time to time, but on this occasion she plays the piano. In an almost comical fashion, we see the young girl swaying on her feet with her head supported by the piano. She is completely unaware of her actions, yet perfectly, she plays the piano.
It is hard to perceive even for the young girl as she has no recollection of the previous night’s activities. But how is this possible?
Studies show that pianists utilize muscle memory. Compare it to the actions of walking and running. It is something we do not think about when we do it. We can run or walk while doing something else.
Pianists can do the same, they can play the notes without thinking about it. They’re free to focus on other things, like sleep.
Sleepwalking, or somnambulism, is a behavioral disorder that originates during deep sleep and results in walking or performing other complex behaviors while asleep. That explains it!
This little doll is just adorable and talented! Sleep and all.
