This music 'tinkles' at times, but not like Chopin noooooooo way. These are EPIC tinkles, tinkles that ROCK, POWER TINKLES and ELECTRONIC TINKLES. Seeing this live would be a better experience than just watching it on youtube because of the INSANE SURROUND SOUND.
mind you...this isn't gonna be something like your mother's classical music, no way jose, this is not tinkly chamber music, this an EPIC SONIC EXPERIENCE, it is MUSCULAR MUSIC filled with TRIBAL RHYTHMS that make the music come ALIVE, makes the HEART RACE and the BLOOD PUMP....a rush of adrenaline..............
But on another level, this is the kind of music to let WASH OVER YOU as it transports your mind and your spirit to a new UNIVERSE of auditory experience...........this is art that takes you to ANOTHER LEVEL OF EXISTENCE....and it is SWITCHED ON!
Ex... Exx.... uh... excuse me while I quite literally sit here laughing so hard I'm almost suffocating!
<whew!> Ok, now that I've got that out of my system!!! That was truly an epic sell. Absolutely, positively epic. No - seriously! It was hilarious!
So lemme go see what the product is - I can already tell I'll want at least 50 of 'em
Maybe some stock in the company, too
Oh, you didn't mention - will it cure male pattern baldness or ED? Sounds like it might handle both...
46+ minutes, eh? Well, at least I know I'm not getting rickrolled with 4:03 (I think that's the title, anyway)
While I'm downloading it (playing ANYTHING "live" from Youtube is almost physically painful for me due to my ancient computer and iffy wireless connection - can you say "skips like a record with a quarter-inch gouge across it"? Sure - I knew ya could
) I'll note this: Finished my previous reply and started googling around only to hit this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_E7f00J0hDw
- Paul Jacobs doing the Sinfonia from Cantata #29 on the organ where they taped the old "Hour of Power" show - the Crystal Cathedral, wasn't it? Ummm... What to say and how to say it? Well, in a nutshell, I had no choice but to applaud, even knowing full well it was just a youtube vid of an old performance. <BLINK> <BLINK> Just... Just... Wow. Color me blown away. Notice how I said blown, not scared. And I always thought Wendy's version on S-oB was neat... Just plain wow...
Dakidd's verdict on the Sinfonia as performed by Mr. Jacobs: Two big thumbs way WAY up! Absolutely outstanding. Totally mind-blowing. Recommended for any and all listeners.
And let's conserve some electrons, since it looks like this forum (the software, I mean - some can't cope) is smart enough to handle sticking quotes from multiple messages into one reply without too much trouble...
With your pronounced preference for "no tinkley music; no unmanly chamber music," (lol), and your being virtually a stranger to about 1100 plus years of classical music, any and all suggested works are a wild guess as to what might interest you.
Which, my good man, is *PRECISELY* what I'm looking for. Wild guesses based on the (admittedly limited) information available. Exposure first, refinement later, doncha know...
Rest assured that even if I'm not immediately hitting links or chasing suggestions, they are indeed being noted for (very near) future consideration.
Once you have a better idea of what appeals to you, holds your interest, with that in hand any number of members here can further point you in the direction(s) you want to go.
By George, I do believe this fellow is reading my mind - or what's left of it! How else could he have caught on to my insidious plan so quickly?
Trusty sidekick Fluffy, bring me the tinfoil and the origami hat instruction sheet, ASAP!
Oh, and that italicized "interesting" in your other response has me wondering if it would be wise to start running *NOW*, thus avoiding the crowds...
(As in "What does he know that makes me suspect I ought to be at least somewhat afraid, if not downright terrified?"
<time passes, download completes, 'play' is pressed>
Ouch... Jessop, I don't know what kind of game you're playing at, but I wanted to hear about music, not a string of snippets from the soundtrack of a poorly scored suspense movie.
Seriously - as I type this, I'm at 5:54, and if the soundtrack is any indication, the killer/monster/bad guy has snuck up on/grabbed at/attempted to rape/otherwise menaced the innocent unsuspecting (and probably stereotypically air-headed, blonde, big-boobed and bimbo-esque) girl about 40 times or so, and I think Kojak, Columbo, Reed and Malloy, Ponch and Jon, Dirty Harry, and even Tootie from Car 54 have all gotten in on shooting (at?) the perp at least 15 times - so far. At the rate they're going, by the time this thing wraps up, they're going to need to be ordering body-bags by the gross, and gun violence won't be a problem, since they'll have used up nearly all of the ammunition. About another 30 seconds like this, and it's gonna exceed my obnoxiousness limit. (which means that, were I attending this performance, by now, I'd be at the box office demanding a refund of my admission price and deciding if I was going to make any stops for booze or munchies along my route home from the venue)
UGH. So I was generous - I let it get to 7:43, and it didn't improve. Skipped around to several places, and it doesn't get any better - it only gets more frenetic, strident, and just plain outright unpleasant. Enough. That's a real good example of the sort of crap that will put me off the genre completely. In fairness, I gotta say I expected something like a rickroll with the "sell" you gave it. Truth be told, an actual rickroll would have been less nasty than this putrified mess. Please imagine you've just pressed the 'play' button on a sound-effect track of Archie Bunker's toilet being flushed.
I must be looking in the wrong place, as I can't find a "spew" emoticon... Which is what this stinker deserves.
