Rob Scallon, along with everyone else who is currently alive, knows and likely loves Queen's 1975 cultural phenomenon/insanely huge hit "Bohemian Rhapsody." Though Scallon took a very different approach to the song and not only edited one guitar note to be every single note in the song, but also made an accompanying video demonstrating at which point each note is played.
Here's what Scallon said about the creation of the track.
Sound and video edit here were actually done separately for the sake of sanity. But everything within the audio is from that first 13 seconds of footage using pretty minimal audio editing. Each note is just speeding up or slowing down that original note to get different pitches, hence why the high notes are so short. The drums had some EQ to them, everything got reverb, bit of mastering.
If anything, you have to appreciate the ridiculous amount of editing that went into this. Here are some of his past videos:
