+1 - That song just struck me ( really, that was an unintentional pun) when it came out. I didn't realize she was a Chicago area performer.

No ER for Chi - she's got new CDs/downloads out:

Chi Coltrane - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Also, on the OP - very impressive, but is there any info on the speed? I'm having trouble relating to what I'm seeing. 9000 images a minute (or whatever it said) doesn't tell me much unless I know the frame rate. I couldn't figure out the ticker on there.

Why do I feel like classical music should be playing when I looked at that video?

I wondered also. All I know is the whole thing took place in the time it took for the original two streaks of light to appear and then disappear -- however long a flash of lightning is. That's pretty darn quick.
