In the video, Lydian is seen telling Ellen that he can play two songs on two different pianos simultaneously. "So, it's like, uh, for example in my left hand I can play Mission Impossible, and on my right hand, I can play Harry Potter simultaneously. So both are different time signatures," he says.
