I couldn’t help myself. I had to share this musical practical joke I have just played with my GPO buds.
My wife is in her public speaking class. For her assignment today, she is showing the class a yoga maneuver involving balancing on one foot while the other foot is brought up to the hip. Unwisely, she asked me to do some music for this. As I consider humor a basic necessity of life, I could not resist. Being that I had less than 30 minutes to compose, record, and burn it on CD, I didn’t get to take the time to think of more evil stuff do but here is the crux:
The music was specifically written to make ones sense of balance off. The last note of the melody is rhythmically delayed at various points, the tempo is set to 103bbm, and did the obvious stuff with rhythm etc. She only had time to listen to it once before she was out the door so I was able to conceal this evil prank as a legit trance/ambience thingy.
Behold the evil:
The time is currently 7:27 central. She gets back around 10. I will advise.
I am reminded of the old Godzilla and Karate movies so imagine me moving lips off sync: “Grasshopper, one must be wise in the use of this power!”
