That is pretty funny...

I have to admit, I'm glad they didn't play the entire piece.  ;D

It is hillariously funny. What is so great about it is the completely new meaning it provides to the image of Zarathustra ascending from the mountain: the harmonies are gone, he is in shambles, there is no structure, and no direction.

I am thinking about the Cohen brother's A Serious Man... no answer is provided anywhere... no spiritual guidance is offered... Just the task of coming to terms with one's own inadequacies... Hey, to me that's a far more interesting concept than what Nietszche and Strauss originally offered ;)  8)

Sounds a bit like Xenakis...  ;D

That's rather disconcerting.
