Wow! When I saw the title I wondered if it might be a motorcycle POV lap of the Isle of Man TT, but it was nearly as fast. Very impressive.

I wonder how many people in the audience understand what was happening?

[I am used to people coming up after a bari sax performance and asking, "Is that a trombone?"]

Awesome. At 0:20 (first clip) there is a good view of blue material inside the bell. Is that used to dampen the tone? I have never seen material inside the bell like that.

Yes, a real speed racer.

When I was at school, we tried to put things in the bell. Sometimes to mute the instrument, and sometimes to change (neutralize in classical music) the color of the saxophone. Sometimes one need to sound on alto sax more like "viola", sometimes more like "clarinet". Perhaps this insert has such a task.

Maybe it is low note warble mitigation.
